Elementary Program

Elementary Program

Ages 5 to 7

With smaller class sizes and individualized attention, our kindergarten program allows your child to gain greater confidence in their learning abilities and deepen their understanding of the Montessori curriculum.

Give your child a chance to experience the full benefits of a self-directed Montessori education in a collaborative classroom setting. This will help them build stronger leadership skills, so they can become creative and competent lifelong learners who will be determined to succeed in any path they pursue.

Core Components of Curriculum

Your child will learn about numbers and their functions through interacting with concrete Montessori materials. These connections are reinforced and applied through play-oriented activities. For example, measuring sand, water, and ingredients for cooking.


Teaching science in elementary Montessori education is a hands-on and exploratory experience that allows children to discover and explore the natural world. Montessori educators understand that children have a natural curiosity about the world around them, and they use this innate curiosity to facilitate learning. The classroom environment is set up to encourage experimentation and observation, with materials that are designed to foster the development of scientific concepts and skills. Children are encouraged to work at their own pace and follow their interests, which helps them develop a deep understanding and love for science. Overall, teaching science in elementary Montessori education helps children develop critical thinking skills, problem-solving abilities, and a strong foundation in scientific principles.


Teaching geography in elementary Montessori education is a dynamic and engaging process that encourages children to explore the world around them. Montessori educators recognize that geography is more than just the study of maps and locations, and they use this understanding to help children develop a deep appreciation and respect for the diversity of cultures, traditions, and ecosystems around the world. Children are introduced to concepts such as landforms, climates, and biomes through hands-on activities and interactive lessons. They use maps, globes, and other materials to explore the world and understand the interconnectedness of different regions. Additionally, children are encouraged to learn about different cultures and traditions, helping them develop empathy and an understanding of global perspectives. Overall, teaching geography in elementary Montessori education helps children develop a strong foundation in geography while fostering a sense of curiosity and wonder about the world around them.


We will use Montessori materials to teach your child how to differentiate between sizes, shapes, colors, textures, sounds and tastes using their senses. Through repetitive tasks, they’ll learn how to solve concrete problems in a structured and sequential way.

Language Arts

Your child will learn verbal and written communication skills by reading, listening to stories, speaking, and practicing penmanship. We encourage children to communicate their ideas and feelings through dramatic play, drawings, sharing time, and writing about their own experiences using tactile Montessori materials. We’ll also introduce them to various languages from around the world, so they can learn about other cultures and embrace diversity.

Financial Aid

At K-Step, we see children as the heart of our communities and the change we seek in the world. We believe every child should have the opportunity to reach her complete potential regardless of financial or social challenges. We offer support to income qualified families with access to quality childcare and education with state funded subsidized plans.
