Kingsley teachers are dedicated to Knowing Every Child as unique individuals and guiding and supporting them through their learning. Across all divisions, students and teachers are also supported by the Student Support Team (SST) who ensure an insightful understanding of the child’s academic and social-emotional progress.
We know that children learn best when parents learn with them. As children develop, so do parents. At Kingsley, the parent experience is designed to enable this development while optimizing the child’s learning within an inclusive and diverse community.
Children may enter Kingsley as early as age 2 and have the opportunity to remain enrolled until age 12. This ten-year period, the Foundational Decade, develops in children an approach to learning that serves them for a lifetime. Rooted in Montessori principles and practices, Kingsley's approach to education enables, guides, and facilitates student curiosity, social emotional health, and academic competency. Kingsley’s method of education engages each child's head, hands, and heart while respecting the pace at which they acquire knowledge, attitudes, and skills.
The Montessori multi-age grouping is optimal for The Foundational Decade of Learning. Each child remains in the same classroom for three years allowing a deep relationship between the child and the teacher, as well as between the family and the teacher. As they make their way through Kingsley, students have the opportunity to explore and learn when they are ready to do so because the teachers are attuned to their readiness and motivation to learn.
A diverse, equitable, and inclusive community is integral to fulfilling our mission. Kingsley Montessori School strives to be a place where each person feels a sense of belonging and respect, recognizes and appreciates the richness that is added to our community through diversity, and is empowered to take action against injustices. We actively create such a community through our programming, our professional development, and our hiring, admissions, and governance practices.
