This school year, RUSD introduced a Montessori Program for 3 and 4-year-olds. The 5-year-old program will begin in the 2017-18 school year. Only 5-year-olds with previous Montessori experience are eligible for the program.
Montessori education emphasizes independence and respect for a child’s naturally developing cognitive, physical and social skills. The RUSD Montessori program currently offers four multi-age sessions (two a.m. and two p.m.) and has space for approximately 80 RUSD students. Three and 4-year-old students attend a half-day. Wrap-around care is available.
The Montessori Program is located in the early learning wing of Goodland Elementary School (4800 Graceland Blvd.). Transportation is provided for 4 year olds who live more than two miles from Goodland Elementary School.
For the 2017-2018 school year, three and four-year-olds will attend school for a half day, during the morning session only. Five-year-old students will attend for a full day.
