New Programs at RKMS
Toddler Enrichment Program New!
The Toddler Enrichment Program is a new program offered for children in the Toddler AM 1 (TAM-1) class. Children in this program will explore the areas of gym, music, art, language and Spanish. The program extends the child’s day for parents looking for a longer morning for their children. The class meets on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 10:30am – 11:30am, immediately following the TAM-1 class (which is conducted from 8:15am – 10:15am).
Kindergarten Enrichment Program New!
Don’t miss this opportunity to enrich your kindergartener’s current school experience in the areas of reading, writing, geography, and math. The children will begin their afternoon at 11:30 and eat lunch together (brown bag or a hot, organic option for an additional fee). Afterward, the children will have the freedom to make choices in the classroom in the above areas with the guidance of the Montessori trained directress who will learn about each child’s individual learning styles and developmental level and guide appropriately. This class meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11:30am – 3:00pm.
Ronald Knox Montessori School (RKMS) is located in Wilmette, Illinois, just 19 miles north of downtown Chicago and nestled within 23 acres of open property in a quiet residential neighborhood. RKMS provides a nurturing, stimulating environment for children from six months through six years of age.
Since 1963, this parent-governed and professionally operated non-profit has dedicated itself to the Montessori educational philosophy. At the heart of our beliefs is the notion that the greatest learning occurs when children are allowed to choose their own path to development. At RKMS, children are encouraged to explore a world of activities under the watchful eyes of competent, Montessori-trained teachers. In this setting, children cultivate concentration, motivation and self-discipline along with a life-long love of learning, high self-esteem and respect for others and the world around them.
Ronald Knox Montessori School is committed to following the Montessori philosophy to create a nurturing, stimulating environment that promotes concentration, coordination, a sense of order, independence, grace and courtesy, and the life skills needed for each child to reach his or her full potential. Parents, faculty, and administrators form a community to foster a lifelong love of learning in our children and to promote respect for self, others, and the world around them.
