A child’s brain starts to develop even before they are born and from their first days through the time that they are ready to enter elementary school, their environment, their interactions with adults and with other children, and the activities that they participate in all offer opportunities for their cognitive, physical, social, and emotional development to be nurtured. Whether it’s through group or individual structured learning activities, the use of technology, Montessori approaches, or through play, every activity nurtures the unique potential that each child possesses and addresses the developmental needs of the “whole child.” Too many Early Childhood Development Centers do not take advantage of the nearly five years that they have to prepare children to enter Kindergarten ready to excel. The Kensington School keeps and maintains the best practices of the proven Montessori approach, but updates several of these Montessori elements for the 21st century. It integrates these Montessori approaches with the use of modern technology, a focus on 21st century skills such as engineering, an emphasis on 21st century approaches (critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity), and the use of cutting-edge child-centered educational practices. This approach will not only prepare students for success in school in the years ahead irrespective of where they attend school but also for the careers of the future.
