The Foundation of Montessori Education
The Montessori School at Ken Caryl is a place for children
to become independent and develop their potential.
At MSKC children are able to freely express who they are each and every day.
We are a non-profit Montessori School serving the Littleton community. Each family and child experiences a difference in our program. We respect independence and value community. We adhere to the philosophy “follow the child,” which means that each child is an individual, and this uniqueness plays a critical role in education. Children help inform us of their potential, and they indicate how we can best help them move toward that potential.
Please browse our site or contact us to schedule a tour and learn more about the Montessori difference.
Check out what some of our community’s parents have been saying about
“Wow!!! I love love love this school. It CHANGED my exuburant head-strong daughter into a productive member of society. The TRAINED teachers listen to the kids and have endless patience. Seriously- I can’t say enough about this school. She is in the primary program and LOVES it. Our son is in the infant room and he also LOVES it. You won’t find high school kids watching your kiddos at this place. Come take a tour and you will see what the buzz is about”
“My Kids are so Happy Here. The teachers are kind and patient. They teach the kids to be respectful of one another. I like how my kids are exposed to so many different activities that teach them life skills. They get to do things that other schools wouldn’t consider (like hammering nails, sewing with needles and thread, cooking). One of my sons who has fine-motor difficulties, has increased these skills beyond my expectations. While the program is based on a child’s direction, the teachers are really good at getting them to practice activities that strengthen their weaknesses–all while enjoying it! All the people that work at the school are incredibly loving to the kids. Many of them have their own kids there, so they really get to know everyone very well. We also love the before-and-after care options and the optional programs throughout the day, like the tumble bus, dance, and music classes. I highly recommend the school!”
“Nurturing Toddler Environment. My daughter is enrolled in the toddler room at MSKC. She has really thrived in the nurturing environment there. Everyday that I drop her off, the teacher is on bended knee welcoming her, giving her a hug and telling her how glad she is to see her. There are thorough reports of your child’s day at pickup time as well as a verbal report. The children have a wide variety of learning opportunities and there are always options for enriched learning from tumbling to music classes.”
“Love this school! I have 2 daughters who have attended MSKC. One for 5 years and the other 3 years. I can’t say enough great things about the school, teachers, and leadership. The school has helped them to be independant, thoughtful kids. The school has a tight knit community of parents.”
“My Kids Won’t Leave! I appreciate the quality of teachers and all of their training because it shows in the classrooms. My children enjoy school so much that I can’t get them to leave in the afternoon. We went ahead and signed up for additional after-school programs because of it. Luckily, this is a great problem to have when it comes to kids and education. Keep up the great work.”
“Montessori at its best. My daughter attended MSKC for two years and blossomed into a wonderfully empathetic, caring, curious and independent child. I was really pleased to see her make such great friends and enjoy school so much.”
