Admissions & Enrollment
KMS Enrolls Students Who:
- can communicate their needs
- follow directions
- dress themselves and use the toilet independently
- demonstrate a basic level of independence and verbal skills
- are at least 2.9 years old at the start of the academic year
Students who meet the requirements are enrolled on a first-come-first-served basis, with priority to returning students and siblings.* KMS strives to achieve an optimal educational environment which allows children to function in a classroom that provides “freedom within limits.” Children learn to explore the materials in the classroom while respecting self, others, and the environment.
The curriculum in an authentic Montessori classroom spans three years, therefore children who are enrolled around the age of three gain the maximum benefit from our program. Mid-year admission is also considered, space permitting. We do expect to have a waiting list, so please register early!
I was impressed with every aspect of the school: the sophistication of the activities, the students’ rapt attention, the teachers’ wonderful explanations, and a general atmosphere of curiosity and interest in learning.
