Our private kindergarten program is for late four year olds and five year olds. The kindergarten classroom is set up like a traditional classroom but with more individualized attention and thus a more nurturing environment.
Our goal is to develop confidence in the areas of language arts and math while implementing and utilizing Montessori philosophies and materials to reinforce traditional lessons. Students benefit from a 1:10 ratio, which enables teachers to know them, their strengths and their areas of opportunity more deeply.
Our curriculum draws from SC state standards as well as the Montessori curriculum. We are excited to introduce our new literacy program, which is Orton-Gillingham based and aligns with what is anticipated as the direction of literacy in the Fort Mill School District kindergarten classrooms. Orton-Gillingham is an excellent compliment to Montessori language arts.
All students in kindergarten will receive two report cards during the school year and will be offered two parent-teacher conferences. All of our kindergarten students benefit from the instruction and collaboration of our Education Director, Literacy Specialist, and our Montessori Specialist.
The kindergarten program is an academic year-long commitment.
