Our program includes Kindergarten as part of a multi-age classroom. In the Montessori tradition, five-year-old children who have aged up in program are in their "flowering year," when many of the concepts introduced at ages three and four seem to click.

Socially and emotionally, this is a time when children are better able to step into a big sister or brother role in the classroom. There are many individual reasons to consider keeping your child at MDS through age five before enrolling in another school. The additional exposure to the Montessori environment can be a boon. It can also give you the time you need to locate the best available elementary school match, whether public or private. Our teachers and Executive Director can help you determine what is best for your child. We are here to help.
