Kindergarten Program

MCS offers toddler, early childhood, kindergarten, and elementary programs based upon the educational philosophy of Maria Montessori. This philosophy promotes self-reliance, a love for learning, and a healthy respect for the rights of individuals. The Montessori Method of education views each child as a whole being whose physical, emotional, social and cognitive parts are all interrelated. Our programs are structured to provide relaxed and secure environments to stimulate the child’s natural curiosity.

Kindergarten Program

The multi-age group in the morning enables the kindergarten student to reinforce knowledge, to expand knowledge, and to gain confidence by helping younger classmates. The afternoon portion of the day groups the kindergarten students with peers in an environment that further develops the attitudes, skills, and habits that are so important for learning and social development. Because of the open-endedness of the Montessori materials, there is no limit to what a child can do.

Our kindergarten program meets Monday through Friday from 8:30 AM to 3:30 PM. Enrollment is based on directress recommendation and the age for kindergarten enrollment in the community in which the child resides. Students without previous Montessori experience will be evaluated for admission.
