Montessori Kindergarten Studio

Harness curiosity

In our Montessori Studio, children learn through specially designed hands-on materials and lots of play. Guides help model skills to students, then give them the freedom to learn at their own pace and from peers across age ranges. Our focus is educating the whole child, including physically, socially, mentally, and emotionally, and tailoring everything to individual needs. Our learners develop core academic skills as well as good character, both individually and in community.

Montessori kindergarten learners:

  • Grow curiosity through hands-on projects and outdoor adventure "Spark Play".
  • Explore mindfulness, natural interests, and music, and have a LOT of fun.
  • Build the foundations of independent learning, reading, writing, communication, and math.
