Learning Science

Developing an understanding of the world around them.

Science in a Montessori Classroom

Developing an appreciation for and an understanding of the world around them.

We cannot create observers by saying ‘observe’, but by giving them the power and the means for this observation. – Dr. Maria Montessori


Science provides our children with the opportunities to focus on the process and issues of science. KSMS students learn to ask questions, learn the process of observation, how to collect and analyze what they observe, and how to conduct controlled experiments. With these goals in mind, our lessons and materials are important. All of the content for Science is divided into sub-categories and these sub-categories and the lessons within them are listed in the order in which they would be introduced for most children in today’s classrooms.

Reading Within Two Weeks
A Yelp testimonial from one of our parents
“My son attended K.S.M.S from ages 2-5 and loved it! The teachers, staff, Ms. Yolanda, Sandy, Mark and Barbara all made him feel like he was part of their family. I am glad we found this school, because I feel it gave him a wonderful foundation for learning. His first year of kindergarten he was reading within 2 weeks! I attribute this to K.S.M.S. having him prepared. Fast forward 8 years… he is an all “A” honor student, and has excelled in many areas. I believe his experience at K.S.M.S encouraged his love of learning at an early age. The “hands-on approach of Montessori and making learning fun is so much better than rote memorization! Thank you to all of K.S.M.S for taking good care of my little boy!” – Amy W.
