The curriculum offered is the “Montessori Method” for children ages 18 months old through Grade 6. At VFKH, an independent private and AMI accredited school, your child is nurtured through this method to continue to grow at his or her own developmentally appropriate pace within an individualized learning framework. Besides Language, Mathematics, Cultural Studies and Geography, the children also work with activities that develop and strengthen their muscular coordination, motor skills, concentration and enhance their sensory awareness. Students also have freedom of choice and many opportunities to develop their social skills. Whether your child is toddler, preschool, kindergarten or elementary age, VFKH provides the experience to grow and excel in each of these ways. Children leave VFKH well prepared academically, socially and emotionally.
Ages 18 months through Grade 6. VFKH school years run from September to June of the following year and follow an academic calendar. Activities include Art, Music, Field Trips and Family-Oriented Activities
