Montessori Programs

At The Montessori School, we have three levels of academic programs as well as unique programmatic enhancements for your child.

Preschool  –  Offered at both campuses five days per week from 9am-12pm, our preschool program offers our youngest students an enhanced academic introduction to many different concepts through the use of the Montessori Method and materials. A bilingual program is available at our Richland Campus. Morning and afternoon childcare available.

Kindergarten –  Offered at both campuses five days per week, from 9am-3pm, this extension of the Primary program builds upon the concepts introduced during students’ first years in the preschool program. The transition to the Extended Day program usually takes place during the traditional Kindergarten year. A bilingual program is available at our Richland Campus.

Elementary  –  Offered at our Kalamazoo campus five days a week from 8:15am-3pm, these classrooms maintain a 1:14 adult-to-student ratio and are designed for students ages 6 to 12.
