Kingston Montessori is a “Children’s House” where children work and learn as a community. Our learning community is a carefully prepared environment where children move about freely within limits. They select work that captures their interest and are empowered to care for their environment.

The learning process is hands-on, active, self-directed, intrinsically motivating and respectful. As children go about their work calmly and purposefully, the child-centered environment is focused on individual progress and development.

Dr. Montessori’s scientific investigations, philosophy of child development, systematic sequential design of her instructional materials, and instructional methodology provide a clear path to helping children construct knowledge, and acquire life-long skills and abilities. Beginning in infancy children learn everything from their environment. Their sensitivity period for learning is so very strong. They need a rich environment designed to nurture and support their development so that they can reach their fullest potential.
