Your child’s academic success depends heavily on his or her kindergarten experience. In kindergarten, your son or daughter develops primary skills that lay the foundation for school readiness in reading, writing, counting, and socializing.
Consequently, you need to make sure that your child attends a school where he or she receives complete attention from a kind and compassionate teacher.
At Miniapple International Montessori Schools, we offer a private kindergarten to Minneapolis, Roseville and Oakdale students. Our small class sizes and top-notch teachers give your child the opportunity to learn and grow at his or her own pace.
Preparation for School Readiness
- Practical Life/Dramatic Play
- World Languages
- World Music
Though we encourage children to explore these areas at their own pace, our teachers follow a state-recognized curriculum to ensure your child has a firm grasp of the basics by the time he or she finishes the program.
Furthermore, each of our classrooms feature visually attractive materials organized on low, uncluttered shelves. This ease of access and nurturing environment gives your child a hands-on learning experience and encourages your son or daughter to explore his or her interests.

Importance of the Kindergarten Year In Montessori (click article to read)
“I do not know how Miniapple compares to other Montessori schools, but I do know the relief I felt after Rory started. About a month into it, I simply could breathe much more easily! The way in which respect for everyone is shown here let me know we had found “the right place.” It became so clear to me this year that Kindergarten belongs with preschool and not with primary school. I have been told and have read that Maria Montessori recognized this, and it made sense in my mind. But it was not until I saw the development/transition unfold, did I understand how closely connected these two groups are. For Rory to have left without completing the Kindergaren year (at Miniapple) would have been premature. He has been transitioning all year at his own pace and it has been wonderful. I feel he is much better prepared for life with older children and peers. And his enthusiasm for learning is so exciting to me. I have loved the Montessori approach to child development and learning. I wish we had started him at Miniapple sooner, but am thankful for the time we have had. How lucky we are!”
