Kids in the classroom

Kindergarten Program

Children in the 3-6 Program are accepted into the Kindergarten Program through teacher recommendation. Children without previous Montessori school education are not eligible for Kindergarten.

The criteria for consideration are as follows:

  1. Chronological Age
  2. Emotional Maturity
  3. Academic Readiness

Classes meet for one and one half hours/three days per week in addition to regular 3-6 classes. Children attend the regular 3-6 in addition to extended hours in the kindergarten program. The program brings together all the skills learned in the previous preschool years and prepares a child socially, emotionally and academically for first grade.

It is not necessary for a child to be in the Kindergarten Program in order to go to first grade the following year.

Children may not be enrolled in the Montessori School and in a public/private kindergarten program during the same school year.
