At the Montessori School in Kleinburg (MSK) we offer Montessori schooling for toddlers (starting at 18 months) to grade six. Each level of learning is divided into different programs — Toddler, Casa, Lower Elementary and Upper Elementary and is based on the Four Planes of Development as per Montessori methodology. Dr. Maria Montessori observed that people go through four distinct periods of physical and psychological changes and that is why it is essential to target their specific learning needs during each phase.
All classrooms at MSK follow a three-year multi-age cycle. This allows for ultimate learning as per the Planes of Development. In any one of our classrooms, you will observe the older children learning by mentoring the younger children and the younger children admiring and learning what their older peers are working on. For example, in the Toddler Program, children between 18 to 30 months will begin their Montessori learning here. But the Casa Program houses children from two-and-a-half to six years of age. And similarly, the Lower Elementary Program will have children from ages six to nine and Upper Elementary will have children from nine to twelve. There is overlap in ages which is beneficial as children remain in the same classroom with their peers and the same teachers (ideally) for a three-year cycle — in each specific plane of development.
