King’s Wood is a parent owned school. Parents form the Board of Directors and are involved in decisions made regarding all aspects of running the school.
Special events and celebrations take place in the classrooms for the children throughout the year for birthdays, the change of seasons and celebration of the countries we are studying.
Every year we host events for the entire family to participate in such as a hayride and a museum night which foster a strong sense of community within the families of the school and to help form lasting parent and staff relationships. Each year there are children whose parents were also students at King’s Wood!
Children have the unique opportunity to be with the same teacher for the duration of their stay here. This not only gives the children a deep sense of security, but it also provides the opportunity for them to form close bonds with their teachers and allows the teachers to understand each childs interest’s, learning style and idiosyncracies.
We have more than 40 years of experience giving us a literal and figurative storehouse of materials and activities to engage the wide ranging interests of individual children.
My daughter has been going to KWMS for over a year and she absolutely LOVES it! She learns so many things in such a short period of time – life skills, social skills, and of course the wonderful hands-on approach that only a Montessori school can provide. I also enjoy the great flexibility that the after school care offers! You can tell the school the same day that your child needs after school care – it’s really fantastic (and unique), especially if you have other children. Furthermore, the teachers are very knowledgeable and caring. My daughter talks about her teachers all the time and definitely has a fondness towards them. I think this says a lot if a 4 year old loves her teachers. Overall, KWMS is a very nurturing school with fantastic staff and programs.
