Kindergarten at Newburyport Montessori
Children enrolled in kindergarten at Newburyport Montessori School experience a prepared, child-centered environment that encourages active learning through exploration and discovery. Children have access to multilevel experiences and activities of varying degrees of complexity. They are able to use concrete materials that allow for individual differences and natural variations in their ability.
Friday’s are often a day for field trips. Children have learned how to make pizza at Anchor Stone Deck Pizza, how to make whoopie pies at Chococoa, and they have learned about cheese at Grand Trunk Old World Market. The children have also visited places such the Customs House Maritime Museum, Fire Station, Police Station, and US Coast Guard Station.
We offer two options for kindergarten: five mornings and four afternoons (Monday through Thursday), or five full days.
