All Day Programs

 

The AM/PM program:

Children who are under 4.9 years of age may enroll in both a morning and afternoon class described above.

The Extended Day Program

A very special Kindergarten year:

The Extended Day Program is available for children who are at least 4 years 9 months old. Students attend morning classes as described and then meet as a smaller group for the Extended Day Program. In the afternoon they are able to do individual work with more complex materials and enjoy group activities: writing class books, studying the human body, writing and performing plays, and other activities which arise from the interests of the group. We also offer unique opportunities not available at other schools such as preparing and enjoying lunch together and hiking in the woods.

Before and After School Care

Runs from 8:00–9:00 and from 3:00–5:30

We offer both Before School and After School Programs to parents who need additional hours before or after the scheduled program. This time offers the children additional time in the classroom working with the teachers and materials offered during the day.

At King’s Wood Montessori School the teacher’s primary goal is to recognize a child’s individual needs and to introduce materials and ideas at the right moment for each child’s self-confidence and growth.
