Montessori PreSchool and Kindergarten
In a Montessori class, children engage in interactive learning in a comfortable and busy, productive atmosphere where individualized work, group activities and stimulating classroom materials help a child to grow to her/his highest potential. Within the mixed age group of 3-6 year olds, cooperation replaces competition. The opportunity for daily repetition and progressive processes ensures that each child has the potential to learn a sense of order, habits of concentration, initiation of purposeful activity, self-control/discipline, curiosity and inner peace. The Montessori approach was developed by Dr. Maria Montessori and has over 100 years of successful results. Ms. Kim Becker with 17 years of experience is a certified Montessori School instructor.

Donors enable the Y, a charitable, non-profit 501(c)3 organization to offer a financial assistance program for those individuals and families that qualify as well as providing program subsidy for much needed community programs.
