- The Montessori teaching method, as developed by Dr. Maria Montessori, is an approach to learning that recognizes young children's tremendous capacity and desire to discover and explore the environment that is their immediate world.
- By creating a rich and responsive environment where the children can develop as individuals, the Montessori method facilitates learning by converting the child's natural curiosity into learning patterns.
- Classes are comprised of mixed age groups to provide models for imitation and opportunities to reinforce their knowledge by demonstrating to others.
- We offer half-day and full-day programs and before and after-school care.

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.
