I went to a Montessori school and when I found out about KWMS I was quite excited. My two daughters are attending KWMS - My oldest is there since she was almost 3, and now my youngest at almost 3 gets to be with her sister while learning, exploring, playing, and discovering. The school's staff members are so warm and open heart. They are great at communicating, run special events every month at least once and they engage the parents regularly in in-school and out-of-school activities. There are plenty of volunteer opportunities so the parents are part of the classes or at other times with the kids. The kids get to spend time inside working on their abilities and have much social interaction outside on the playground and the woods next to the school. My kids come home excited, talking about their dear teachers, their classmates, and their activities. I love and recommend KWMS to any parent of a pre-schooler or a kindergartner!

My daughter has been going to KWMS for over a year and she absolutely LOVES it! She learns so many things in such a short period of time - life skills, social skills, and of course the wonderful hands-on approach that only a Montessori school can provide. I also enjoy the great flexibility that the after school care offers! You can tell the school the same day that your child needs after school care - it's really fantastic (and unique), especially if you have other children. Furthermore, the teachers are very knowledgeable and caring. My daughter talks about her teachers all the time and definitely has a fondness towards them. I think this says a lot if a 4 year old loves her teachers. Overall, KWMS is a very nurturing school with fantastic staff and programs.
