How we Teach Science in a Montessori Classroom

Helping children develop 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


In our pre-school Montessori science lessons the children learn about science by observing, analyzing, and asking questions. They learn about animals, plants, the weather, why things sink or float, and so much more.

We have many hands-on experiments so that the children can see and feel what’s happening. Maybe it’s a science lesson on why colors change or a lesson on why or how things burn in the sun. It could be a lesson on why the density of salt in the water makes things sink or float.

We also learn about living vs non-living, our solar system, parts of plants and animals in Science lessons. There is so much that young children can learn about to pique their interest.

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.
