"Free the child's potential, and you will transform him into the world" -Maria Montessori
Why Montessori BMS offers our children opportunities to develop their potential as they step out into the world as engaged, responsible, and respectful citizens with an understanding and appreciation that learning is for life.
Given the freedom and support to question, to probe deeply, and to make connections, Montessori students become self confident, enthusiastic, self directed learners. They are able to think critically, work collaboratively, act boldly, and gain the skills necessary to be successful in the 21st century. We see our school as a joyful, peaceful, respectful and extraordinary educational community.
Primary (3-6yo) 9:00-12:00
The Montessori Primary environment includes children ages 3 through 6 years (preschool and kindergarten). Bluegrass Montessori School offers three Primary rooms, each with a Montessori certified lead teacher and an assistant. The teacher-student ratio in the Primary classrooms is 1:12, which gives teachers the opportunity for individualized attention and self-paced learning.
Before and After School
Every family has its own schedule, and BMS offers Before School for early risers and After School to accommodate the needs our families. We also offer drop-in options for occasional needs. Children enjoy a home-like, electronics-free environment with both indoor and outdoor play time.
