At KMS we promote curiosity and exploration through experiential learning for children ages 3 – 12. KMS serves over 100 children, offering preschool, kindergarten, and elementary programs. We work to support the needs of the whole child; social, emotional, and cognitive. We embrace the opportunity to guide children academically on their unique paths as lifelong learners.
KMS proudly offers high quality programming including:
Our Primary Classrooms serve children ages 3-6, comprising both preschool and the Extended Day (Kindergarten) years. Our Lower Elementary program serves Grades 1-3, while Upper Elementary serves Grades 4-6.
Before Care and Aftercare are also offered on-site.
Join us to tour the beautiful indoor and outdoor learning spaces along with the art studio and common areas where we foster the independence that each child yearns for by promoting responsibility for themselves, others and the environment. Come explore the opportunity for your child and discover the Montessori approach. As the only non-denominational, alternative Elementary school in the greater Waterville area we support students from diverse backgrounds and widespread communities including Pittsfield, Unity, Skowhegan, Kingfield, Belgrade, China, Augusta and Dexter.
KMS is accredited by the American Montessori Society and has been offering experiential educational programs to children since 1976. Based on the method established by Dr. Maria Montessori, we emphasize the development of the whole child through the independent exploration of hands-on materials fueled by the curiosity of the child. In the carefully prepared, multi-age classrooms, there is “freedom within limits” that allows a child to learn at his or her own pace.
All are welcome to visit the school during Open House and learn more about the Montessori approach to early childhood and elementary education. Prospective parents and children will be able to explore the classrooms, try the hands-on materials, meet the teachers, and talk to current parents about their experience.
Applications for 2020-21 will be accepted beginning on March 14. Parents are also encouraged to schedule a classroom observation by calling 207-453-6055. More information about programs and tuition is available online at www.kennebecmontessori.org
