The third, or Kindergarten, year is one of completion in the Montessori Children's House. In this year, students begin to reach internal mastery of their work, and they begin to demonstrate great competence. The curriculum provides more in-depth lessons for math, reading, and language, as well as science, geography and cultural studies. They also have the opportunity to be leaders in the classroom, mentoring their peers by reading, teaching concepts, or helping to tie shoes. Kindergartners learn to have greater independence and freedom, and they love it.
