Our teaching approach assists in a smooth transition along the students’ academic path to elementary school because the Montessori Kindergarten curriculum is directly correlated with the Virginia Standards of Learning. The Phonological Awareness Screening (PALS-K) is administered twice per year in Fall and Spring. The Test of Early Mathematics (TEMA) is administered in the Spring along with quarterly assessments that allow the teacher to gain a full picture of the students’ growth and progression cognitively and socially.
Due to such intentional and thoughtful teaching practices the students tend to meet and exceed benchmarks and are fully prepared to begin their formal education eager, curious, and with a love of learning. Your child will be taught special skills to be independent, capable and self-reliant.
