Welcome to KMS
At Kennebec Montessori School we promote curiosity and exploration through experiential learning for children ages 3 – 12. We foster the independence that each child yearns for by promoting responsibility for themselves, others and the environment. Our work is driven by the needs of the whole child; social, emotional and cognitive. We embrace the opportunity to support children academically on their unique paths as lifelong learners.
- the oldest Montessori school in the state of Maine, operating since 1976, accredited by the American Montessori Society since 2007.
- the only non-denominational, alternative Elementary school in the greater Waterville area supporting students from diverse backgrounds and widespread communities including Pittsfield, Unity, Skowhegan, Kingfield, Belgrade, China, Augusta and Dexter.
- situated on 14 acres of fields and woodlands, with a stream and beautiful views, convenient to Interstate 95. Children can cross-country ski in winter and garden in the spring and summer all while enjoying a large playground that overlooks an adjoining farm.
The environment at KMS fosters independence, curiosity and mindfulness. I appreciate the way my child is learning about how she fits into the greater world and how our actions can have a positive ripple effect. I am thankful everyday that our daughter is able to learn and grow in such a loving, supportive, enriched community.
