The Montessori kindergarten program permits a variety of approaches, using, at every turn, dynamic and colorful manipulative materials that materialize the abstract. The kindergarten student is able to work in groups or choose to work individually. The multi-aged setting, free verbalization and movement also enrich the social life of the Montessori kindergarten. The curriculum at Discovery Montessori includes Mathematics, Language Arts, Reading, Spelling, Montessori Culture (Geography, History, Science), Art, Music, Foreign Language and Physical Education. Our unique 5 acre campus offers endless opportunities to explore nature and the living world around us.
