Cozy Classrooms Filled With Materials To Explore

Daily environments have been designed to facilitate maximum independent exploration. Teachers prepare the classroom with carefully-selected materials, then take a backseat as your child engages and guides their learning.

Exciting Items For Exploratory Play Include:

Getting Kindergarten-Ready With A Unique Curriculum

The Genius Discoveryⓒ Curriculum developed in-house balances principles from the Montessori and Reggio Emilia methods in a play-based environment. Your child gains the necessary academic, social-emotional, and life skills to soar upon their Kindergarten entry. They also learn across different subject areas with Frog Street Curriculum© and Conscious Discipline©!

3 Hours of Discovery Time Doubles Play Opportunities

Your child’s class joins together with another twice a day to give them access to double the opportunities for fun. They move through dramatic play and life skills areas that teachers have created an experiment with boat bridges, balls, bean bags, and more.

Sparkling Spaces For Your Peace Of Mind!

Our Outdoor Classrooms Inspire A Love Of Nature

Outdoor learning spaces are as well-equipped as indoor classrooms. Your little one studies local wildlife to learn about science, stacks blocks, and plays in open-air number centers to brush up on math, and picks new novels from book bins to practice reading in the sunshine.

Teachers Are Both Highly Experienced and Educated

Your child’s teacher is Montessori-trained and holds either a Bachelor’s degree in education or a Child Development Associate credential. They have significant experience working with the Pre-K age group specifically and are CPR-certified for emergencies.

Yoga, Music, Spanish, And More Spark Joy

Daily enrichments bring a sense of excitement to your child’s day and break up their academic learning to teach them skills like creativity, self-expression, and movement. They clap to a beat, dance, twist into pretzels, study robots, ski, and much more. They also learn across subject areas with Frog Street Curriculum© and Conscious Discipline©!

Your Child Learns How To Be Empathetic, Kind, And Mindful

Developing healthy friendships is an integral part of your child’s overall well-being. They benefit from a safe space free of judgment to learn how to identify their emotions, understand how their actions affect their peers, and work through conflict effectively.

Home-Cooked Snacks Made With Love

There’s no need to spend time preparing lunches anymore in the morning. Your child stays energized throughout the day with healthy, nutritious snacks that can be made gluten-free or customized based on their food intolerances.

The Kangarootime App Keeps Parents In The Loop

Never miss a beat about your child’s day or wonder what they’ve been up to again! Teachers use a convenient mobile app to frequently communicate with you and send you photos, videos, and progress reports about your little one’s development.

I recommend DKZ to everyone and will continue to drive my boys to Montana City even though we live on the West side of Helena. Because when you find quality, the travel is worth it.

Clean, super safe and a great environment. My son loved the field trips to the ski hill in January and the bike riding days!
