Kingston Montessori Academy

Individual activity is the one factor that stimulates and produces development.

Our Pre-School/Primary classroom is designed to encompass the areas of learning and socializing that are intended to foster independence, concentration, self-motivation, and a love of learning. In this multi-aged environment the Montessori materials cultivate the child’s interest in reading, math, botany, geography, and cultural subjects. Children experience an enriched environment offering a range of activities that satisfy both the youngest child’s interest in as well as the older child’s increasing understanding of abstract concepts. The classroom contains multiple interrelated areas which are the foundations of the Montessori environment. Each area provides a range of activities that gives the child freedom to develop coordination of movement, awareness of their environment, independent work habits, and responsibility attained through spontaneous, purposeful work.
