The All-Year Montessori classroom will be exclusively dedicated to children who attend The Montessori School‘s Kalamazoo Campus full-day and year round. Children in this classroom will have one continuous program from 7:30am-6:00pm, 12 months per year.
Two trained lead guides, as well as an assistant, will staff the room ensuring that a trained guide will be with these children at all times. Transitions will be eliminated as students will stay with the staff and their peers through the morning work-cycle, lunch, recess, nap (if needed), and the afternoon work-cycle.
The benefits are endless as this group of children become their own year-round, close community for a three-year cycle.
