    Kindergarten Requirements

    The State Legislature recently amended the Revised School Code (MCL § 380.1147), changing the enrollment age for kindergarten students. Beginning with the 2015-16 school year and moving forward, all students must be age 5 by September 1 of the current school year in order to enroll in kindergarten. However, if a student will be age 5 between September 2 and December 1 of the current school year and the parent notifies (completes a waiver) the district/PSA that they are enrolling their child in kindergarten and provides proof of age, they may enroll their child. This process will stay in place until there is a change in legislation.

    The Montessori Approach to Learning

    Montessori is characterized by an emphasis on independence, freedom within limits, and respect for a child’s natural psychological, physical, and social development.

    Children choose their own work

    Children choose their own activities from a range of carefully prepared lessons and materials designed to support children’s natural development and drive to learn.

    Trained teachers support children’s development

    Teachers trained in Montessori principles and practice present a comprehensive curriculum individualized for each child.

    Mixed age groupings

    Classrooms serve children in three-year age groupings according to developmental stages. Children can progress naturally as they are ready for more challenging material, build authentic community and learn from both teachers and peers.
