Richmond Hill Montessori Lottery Prekindergarten Program
The Richmond Hill Montessori Lottery Prekindergarten Program provides child-centered learning experiences for children who meet age eligibility by turning four years of age by September first of each school year for a total of 180 school days. Each class is staffed with a 22:2 student/teacher ratio with 22 being the maximum class size. There are three prekindergarten classes at Richmond Hill Montessori.

The full day program provides a language-rich environment in which early learners are introduced to the formal educational setting that begins in Kindergarten. All Pre-K classes use The Creative Curriculum and the Georgia Early Learning and Developmental Standards which emphasizes a child-centered environment that teaches children to make good learning choices and learn positive interactions while developing peer relationships in our classroom environment. The curriculum involves active learning and provides the children with age appropriate materials. Pre-literacy and pre-math skills are emphasized throughout the curriculum.

The children who participate in the Pre-K program enter Kindergarten with the readiness skills necessary to be successful lifelong learners!

The Pre-Kindergarten Program is funded entirely by the Georgia State Lottery and is considered to be one of the finest educational programs in the nation.
