For Children 2 1/2 to 3 Years of Age

In the “little classroom” we want the children to see school as an exciting, positive experience. They participate in many “firsts” which provide the building blocks for independence, self confidence, a lifetime love of learning and respect for others.

Depending on availability, students are enrolled in the Two-day Class (Mondays and Tuesdays), the Three-day Class (Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays) or all five days.  The hours for both classes are from 8:30 AM to 11:30 AM.

FULL-DAY Kindergarten

The Madison Montessori kindergarten year is one of amazing growth, both academically and socially.  Five- and six-year-olds develop a shift in their maturation processes as they move from being ‘concrete’ learners to being able to think abstractly.  This shift allows them to more deeply understand concepts in Math, Science, and Language.  Montessori materials and teachers support the intellectual changes and challenges students experience during this time.

For some students, kindergarten is the culmination of their years at MMS.  For others, it is their first experience with us. Either way, the kindergarten year at Madison Montessori School is a very special and memorable one, for students and parents alike. Our kindergarten is academic, creative, and social and provides excellent preparation for first grade. 

The kindergarten program features two time options with each classs limited to eight students. Depending on availability, students are enrolled in either the 8:30 AM to 2:30 PM class or the 9:30 AM to 3:30 PM class.  

Tuition:  $14,450 (includes classes in Drama, Cooking and field trips as well as those included in the 3-6 Program ( weekly Music, Yoga, Creative Movement, and Science Experiments).

As a family coming from overseas, we were not very close with the education system in the U.S. When we moved to Chatham, I started to look into preschools in the area, and found Madison Montessori School online. After my first visit, I was immediately hooked by the tight community feeling and the teachers’ enthusiasm and dedication to nurture each child’s unique abilities, both academically and socially - not to mention their many years of experience with the Montessori method! My son LOVED this school so much, that up until today I regret not having moved to the area earlier, for my older daughter to have the same experience.
