Extended Day Kindergarten
Montessori of Plainfield and Montessori of Frankfort schools are focused on multi-age teaching sessions that allow children to develop intuitively and through both peer and teacher example and instruction.

However, an Extended Day Kindergarten Program is available that adds an additional time at the end of the day that is dedicated solely to those of kindergarten age to work with peers and receive specific instruction.

In addition, the longer day can help your child make the transition to a traditional first grade school schedule smoother and less difficult. This helps lay the groundwork for the typical academic demands your child will experience in the future.
