Transitional Kindergarten and Kindergarten

Transitional Kindergarten


As a supplement to our Montessori Program St. Matthew’s Transitional Kindergarten and Kindergarten encompasses the traditional five areas of work while preparing students to mainstream into surrounding school systems. Fundamentals in all subject areas are developed while growing a child’s independent view of educating themselves. The intrinsic motivation needed to truly succeed in mainstream schooling are introduced and nurtured. Our Transitional Kindergarten prepares a student to set and meet goals while developing the self-discipline necessary to be self-directed learners.

Students begin to foster the skills of language arts development through the introduction of readers, independent writing, and more implicit phonetic instruction. Shifting to an emphasis on reading and writing subject matter will strengthen the bridge to mainstreaming to the next developmental level of a traditional classroom.
