Kindergarten

Montessori Education

You have a choice in your child’s kindergarten education – a critical year for building positive habits and instilling a zest for learning. It’s a big decision and we welcome a conversation with parents who want to discuss the benefits of a Montessori education. Feel free to contact us any time or plan a visit to our classroom.

How can the Montessori Discovery School kindergarten program give your child a head start as he or she begins their journey of lifelong learning?

  • The Montessori kindergarten program is a more sophisticated and academically-oriented curriculum than most public schools. On average, there is more exposure to math and language, and culturally-rich, community field trips for hands-on learning. Montessori kindergarteners will have an edge going into first grade.
  • Montessori philosophy teaches kindness and a “helping hands” approach in life. An additional year of a peaceful, respectful environment can make a lasting, positive impact on your child’s behavior.
  • Montessori is consciously designed to adapt to different learning styles. Giving your child an additional year of “customized” high-touch involvement from a certified Montessori teacher will help your child optimize her learning capacity. The maximum student-teacher ratio at our school is 10:1, therefore each child is ensured personal attention and a customized approach to learning.

MDS offers unparalleled flexibility for families:
