The RKMS Early Bird Program is a Montessori approach to health and fitness and helps children to understand and appreciate how their bodies work. Research has shown that regular morning exercise boosts energy and brain function for an everlasting healthy lifestyle.

Emphasis in the Toddler program is placed on helping the young child develop coordination, body image and awareness, a sense of order and concentration. Children in the Toddler Program gain independence and confidence as they learn how to take care of themselves and their environment.

In addition, the program provides nurturing support during a gradual separation from home to school. The child begins to develop inner discipline in relation to his peers, adults and his environment. He also gains a sense of belonging to and contributing to a community which includes and is greater than his own loving family.

Children have opportunities to learn pre-math and language skills such as sounds, counting, and sequencing. Along with preliminary academics, toddler children also practice daily life skills such as preparing their own snack, using the toilet, and navigating peer relationships outside of family members.
