In addition to their daily curriculum, Northwest Montessori students have the option of participating in the following supplemental activities:
Kindergym® is designed to provide boys and girls, ages 3-5, with fun activities including floor gymnastics, tumbling, acrobatics, gross motor development, and movement education. Music appreciation and academic readiness skills are incorporated into each activity as our Kindergym® instructors work to build each child’s self-esteem and independence. Mats, low safe beams, and obstacle courses are utilized throughout the curriculum. The proper timing and use of this program should enhance the physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development of the children while building their sense of self and others.

Kinderdance is a movement and fitness program specifically designed for young children. The emphasis of the program is to expose children to various forms of dance and movement while having fun learning. The basics of ballet, tap, and creative movement are taught while blending numbers, colors, shapes and words into each lesson. The children are provided with appropriate physical, imaginative and critical thinking exercises that contribute to their development.
