Kinder Programs (ages 3-6)

Students in kindergarten, prepa and pre-kinder enjoy Monteverde Friends School in Costa Rica

Our combined Pre-kindergarten (age 3-4), Kindergarten (age 4-5), and Prepa (age 5-6) class emphasizes bilingual skills, self-directed activities, and cooperative learning following a Montessori-based curriculum. We recognize the need for physical and social development through lots of play, stories, and music. Children learn to resolve conflicts though modeling, role-playing, and meeting to talk at the Peace Table.

Our kinder faculty consists of three highly experienced teachers who are fluent Spanish speakers, one of whom is the lead teacher and also a native English speaker.

Pre-K and Kinder children spend only mornings at school, with the school day ending at 12pm. Pre-K students come three days a week, while students in Kindergarten and Prepa come every day. Prepa students stay until 1:30pm, three days a week.
