K.EL Transition Classroom
This program is designed for children who may need expanded curriculum opportunities in a setting that supports emotional and social development without the larger age span of a lower elementary classroom. The student that has a “late” birthday enjoys another year of challenge in a Montessori environment if planning to go to a public school for first grade. The transition class (also known as K.EL) is rich in math, language and reading, and especially the cultural subjects. The lower elementary curriculum leads the programs with the traditional “Great Lessons” with follow up activities designed for each student’s individual needs. The 5 year old does not have the full range of Practical Life and Sensorial materials that are available in a 3-6 year old classroom.
The teaching team includes one Montessori teacher with a 3-6 certification and one teacher with a 6-9 Montessori certification.
