Our kindergarteners are our pride and joy! Children who are five years old before the end of October are eligible for our kindergarten program. This program is fully accredited by the Maryland State Department of Education. Rather than take a nap, kindergarten children participate in a second work cycle. During this time, kindergarteners focus on academic work with an emphasis on language and math.
By the end of the school year, kindergarteners have learned about grammar, geography, fractions, measurement, multiplication, anatomy, solar systems, and much more. As the oldest children in their classrooms, they are also our leaders. Kindergarten children often help their younger friends, and have the opportunity to give lessons as well. Beyond learning more advanced Montessori work, kindergarteners also partake in field trips, experiments, and cooking.
