Montessori on the Lake
Kindergarten / First
Another important aspect of our kindergarten is the integrated cultural subjects we enjoy throughout the year. By blending physical and cultural geography, history, zoology, botany, science, art and music throughout the children's week, we are able to focus on many aspects of a chosen area of study.
In Montessori education, we believe that learning to read, write, and work with numerical concepts is best accomplished one on one or in small groups. Our excellent student/teacher ratio of 13:1 allows each child to have an individual educational program, to work at his own pace, and to have plenty of teacher time. This works for young children as they master their fundamental skills. Strong reading ability, good handwriting, and facility with mathematics are absolutely necessary for a child's future success throughout their educational life.
