Can my child start when they are 4 years old?
Yes, children can start when they are 4 years old. To give your child a full Montessori preschool experience, attendance for the full 3-year cycle is recommended. All of the skills needed to support literacy are part of the learning environment, as is the development of independence, focus & concentration, and social competence. In the third year, the child has an opportunity to be a role model to the younger children, developing a sense of contributing to their preschool community.
