RKMS summer camp students have (safely!) been enjoying their time exploring nature, riding their bikes and scooters, splashing in the sprinklers and so much more. We have new safety procedures in place including, but not limited to taking temperatures prior to students exiting their cars, frequent handwashing and hand sanitizer, and practicing social distancing.

Our plan is to be open for the 2020-2021 school year and we cannot wait to see all of our students once again!

Our Programs

Parent Child
The Parent Child program is designed to allow a child to explore the environment as the parent or caregiver observes.

Emphasis in the Toddler program is placed on helping the young child develop coordination, body image and awareness, a sense of order and concentration.

The Primary Program is a three-year program inclusive of the kindergarten year and for children ages 3-6 years.

Summer Camp
Summer Camp is the ideal way to help your child transition to the next program.

We believe that being an accredited school is fundamental to remaining true to the Montessori philosophy. That is not something every school can say. Accreditation is a rigorous process that can take one to two years to complete.  To quote The American Montessori Society,

"Accreditation begins with an intensive self-study, by the school, involving the school’s entire community—students, staff, faculty, administration, board members, and parents. During the process, every aspect of the school is examined and documented, including governance, curriculum, fiscal and personnel policies, facilities, health and safety practices, teacher preparation, and learner outcomes."

 We are proud to be designated a Level 10 School by the American Montessori Society. This means that we have achieved the highest ranking—actual accreditation—within the Montessori community. Participation in the Pathway process sends a signal to the community that we are committed to best practices and ongoing improvement. 

The benefits are many; an empowerment of the entire school community, continual improvement and an assurance to families that their school is of the highest quality and accountable to a larger body.

Every parent wants only the very best for their child, and choosing a school you can have confidence in is of the utmost importance. We invite you to use the link below to make an informed choice and see which schools in your community have committed themselves to accreditation, maintaining the highest standards of the Montessori philosophy.
