Kingsley loves to celebrate the successes of our students, big and small. One of the most important rites of passage for our students is when they move from Kindergarten into Lower Elementary. We mark this event with a unique celebration known as the Kindergarten Marathon.
Kingsley Montessori School has three Core Values that guide our educational approach, and help shape our school culture. We believe that these values are central to creating the best place to grow and learn.
Kingsley Core Values
- The Foundational Decade of Learning
- Parents as Partners
- Know Every Child
The first of these values, The Foundational Decade of Learning, serves as the backdrop for everything we do at Kingsley.
Setting the Foundation
The Early Childhood environment is the first stop in the Foundational Decade, from ages two through twelve. It sets the groundwork for future learning, by developing the requisite skills for more complex tasks. Toddler and Three-to-Six classrooms nurture and refine developmentally appropriate skills based on the basic Montessori principles for learning: order, coordination, concentration, and independence–or "OCCI."
