King's Wood Montessori School
King's Wood Montessori School is serving the educational needs of children ages 3 through 6 years in Southeastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island since 1968.
The Montessori teaching method, as developed by Maria Montessori, is an approach to learning that recognizes the tremendous capacity and desire of very young children to discover and explore the environment that is their immediate world.
By creating a rich and responsive environment in which the children can absorb, manipulate, work, and develop as individuals, the Montessori method concentrates on enlarging a child's experience and on making the obvious conversion of natural curiosity into learning patterns.
Classes are comprised of mixed age groups in order to provide models for imitation as well as opportunities to reinforce their knowledge by demonstrating to others.
Montessori education is not force-feeding of information and skills designed to produce a precocious child.
The school environment is neither rigidly structured and disciplined, nor disorganized and undisciplined.
It is a non-competitive environment which allows each child to focus on her/his own work.
Many levels of ability can be accommodated in the classroom with true individualization, allowing for a match of pace and level consistent with each child's needs.

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.
