Our Preschool-K program for children age 3 – 6 integrates a Jewish curriculum with Dr. Maria Montessori’s vision that “Children learn by doing”. Satisfying the inquisitive mind and a natural desire for learning while fostering the fulfillment of every child’s potential is our mission.
Our 2017-2018 program will run 5 mornings a week, from 9 am to noon. KI Montessori School uses “hands on” Montessori materials to nurture a desire, excitement, and love for learning that will last for your child’s lifetime!
