We are one big family here at KMCP.  We strive to make the ‘home to school’ relationship as seamless and supportive as possible.  Throughout the school year, we have many events and school wide gatherings that build and strengthen the relationships of our parents to the school, to one another, to the church family of KMC, to our staff, and of course, to the children.

Why Montessori:

We think your child is special and we believe we have something special to share with him or her here at our preschool. We have a small, family-like atmosphere that nurtures the “Whole Child.”  We especially believe that our Montessori styled philosophy and methodology serves children in ways that traditional preschools and childcare centers cannot. 

Reasons to Choose Montessori:

  • Classrooms are well-designed “prepared environments” where everything is child-sized, orderly, and clutter free; thus enabling children to develop an internal sense of order and build good habits (everything has a place and is always put back in its place) right from the start.
  • Children are free to respond to their natural curiosity and innate desire to learn about the world around them.
  • Generally, lessons are presented individually or in small groups, thus allowing each child to progress at his/her own pace and rhythm.
  • We believe children learn best in an active, hands-on learning environment.  Therefore, every lesson includes the use of some type of manipulative or ‘Montessori Didactic Equipment” which the child uses to literally construct his own knowledge and understanding of the intended concept.
  • We believe that ‘making mistakes’ is part of the learning process.  As a matter of fact, self-assessment and self-correction are integral parts of the Montessori educational process. Montessori Lessons are designed to be self-correcting therefore allowing children to problem solve and correct their own mistakes. 
  • All these factors contribute to the child’s self-actualization and build his self-confidence, with the goal of achieving independent thinkers and life-long learners.
