Transitional Kindergarten & Kindergarten

Transitional Kindergarten Program

Learn and Play Montessori gives the children an opportunity to grow their academic skills in our Transitional Kindergarten program with a traditional approach to learning.

Our curriculum is designed at a higher learning standard than the average state program. The average transitional kindergarten child will be learning letters and numbers. On the other hand, at Learn And Play, the Montessori work time allows the children to work at their own pace with concrete materials to abstract, which will help their knowledge become permanent. Our children get introduce to worksheets and book  reports to enhance their learning in a traditional form to prepare them for the kindergarten year.

Kindergarten Program

Our Kindergarten program is a combination of the Montessori philosophy and the traditional approach to education.
