Montessori Kingdom of Learning is located in northwest metropolitan Phoenix in a very serene location surrounded by many retirement facilities. We are involved in many inter-generational activities with our children and the elderly. We have an aviary, a small farm and many gardening areas on our campus. While engaged in outside environment activities the children maintain and care for our plants and animals. Our staff is very dedicated to providing a beautiful environment for our children.
Montessori education is a hands-on approach to learning. There are mixed age groups of children allowing them to learn from observing each other as well as from the teacher. Montessori classrooms include a beautiful array of high quality materials that create abstraction through a concrete approach. The child develops at his or her own pace using these materials. The teacher is the connection between the child and the environment. The teacher guides and motivates the child to move forward. The Montessori environment fosters individualization, freedom of choice, and independence. It helps the children learn to internalize self-discipline and self-motivation.
My 12 year old son started in this school at age 3 and my 7 year old daughter has attended since infancy due to my work schedule at the time. I couldn’t say enough good things about MKL- the staff and other parents are like extended family. It very much lends itself to being that village that it takes to raise a child. My son has mild special needs which have been met with support, compassion, and respect every step of the way. My children both have learned so much beyond academics – social skills, conflict resolution, self-esteem, courtesy and respect, communication skills…the list goes on. If you are looking for an alternative to traditional public or charter school approaches, I would recommend MKL. Robyn Tennyson
