Montessori Country Day School Kindergarten Program
Students look forward to becoming Kindergarten students in their final year in our Primary program. As leaders in their primary classrooms or in our K-1 classroom, students begin to harness their public speaking skills and extend their knowledge by becoming teachers and guides of their younger friends.
Advanced work, “marble notebooks,” more exclusive enrichment classes, “Citizens of the World” Geography program, field trips, STEM sessions, and Reading Street (Common Core aligned literacy program) are a few of the many features kindergarten students look forward to every year. They participate in both the iReady and First in Math online programs that provide assessments that guide future lessons to support each individual kindergarten student’s literacy and math development.
Montessori Country Day School Elementary Program
Our Elementary cottage has the capacity to support the learning and development of our elementary students. Certified teachers, trained to use Montessori pedagogy and materials at this level, work with individual students and in small group instruction to further students’ cognitive development and 21st century skill acquisition. Elementary materials and experiences are designed to lead children towards abstraction and build their abilities to arrange, classify, apply, analyze, synthesize and evaluate information.
Teachers create Individualized Learning Plans for each child every week, children manage daily “workplans,” and both collaborate with parents to draft and act on short and long-term learning and development goals. In addition to STEM, Reading Street, Ukulele and Leadership and Public Speaking programs, children work on public service projects, participate in advanced enrichment programs and hold positions on various committees that support the direction of the school programs and special events. They are our campus leaders!
Our goal is to continue to grow our Kindergarten and Elementary programs. We would love to hear from you. Let us help you ensure your child is a part of the future graduating class at Montessori Country Day School.
