Montessori Community School often enrolls international students in our summer programs.  Our programs provide students an opportunity to experience local and American culture, language, and curriculum.  However, parents should be aware that we do not provide specific English language instruction, and classes are conducted entirely in English.  Please see the program descriptions below for specific entry requirements.

ELEMENTARY PROGRAM (for children 6 to 11 years of age, entering grades 1-5):

Our elementary summer program offers a blend of classroom instruction, with a particular focus on hands-on math and science activities as well as writing, art and cooking projects, and outdoor activities.

Students who enroll in our summer elementary program must be currently enrolled in an International school, where classroom instruction is conducted in English, unless English is the primary language spoken at home.


PRESCHOOL & KINDERGARTEN PROGRAM (for children 3-5 years of age):

The program for preschool 3-5 year-olds focuses on nature studies, with a wide array of hands-on activities in the classroom as well as regular off-campus excursions.

Students who enroll in our summer preschool program do not need to be able to speak fluent English, but for safety’s sake and for the child to have a positive experience in our program, he or she must at least understand, follow directions, and express basic wants and needs in English.  It is also our expectation that parents must be able to communicate with the school in English.


Here are some further points to keep in mind:

  • Formal English language instruction is not part of our summer curriculum.

  • In the elementary program, most activities involve reading and writing in English. Other curriculum areas, such as math, arts and crafts, and outdoor activities would be less dependent upon the English language.  Students will receive maximum benefits from our elementary program if they have basic English reading and writing skills.

  • For their safety, all international students should have an adequate understanding of basic English so they can follow rules and guidelines, both at school and also while attending off-campus excursions.

  • Parents should also be able to communicate to the faculty and staff in English, without the assistance of a translator. In cases of emergency, or even to explain daily classroom routines and schedules, it is critical that our staff be able to clearly communicate important information to the child’s parents in a timely manner.


Special Information:  

Refer to Summer Health Requirements for program entrance requirements for International Students (Please have all required records translated into English.)



Love . . . for the child from staff who are trained  to meet the special needs of this developmental phase.


Warmth . . . in a nurturing environment which allows freedom and movement while the two-year-old develops their skills.


Security . . . in a consistent routine.  As trust is built, the child is better able to develop social skills and independence.


Fun . . . for the child as they explores with the classroom activities indoors and out, while forming new friendships with other children.


June 7 - August 6, 2021

The Two-Year-Old Summer Program is available for continuing MCS students, or new students who will be entering in the Fall.

Love, Warmth, Security, & Fun are key aspects of the Montessori Community School Two-Year-Old Program for children ages 2 to 3 years. Children in diapers are accepted, but children entering the MCS Preschool & Kindergarten Program in the fall should already be toileting independently. 



(Ages 3-5 years)

  • making their own bird feeders using natural materials, and other fun projects

  • becoming a mini-scientist as they perform simple experiments

  • exploring the hidden mysteries of the miniature world of insects

  • creating Monk Seal puppets and other imaginative crafts

...and so much more!


June 7 - August 6, 2021

There’s so much for preschool-aged children to see, do, and learn in the Hawaiian Islands Explorers program this summer!  Our young explorers will learn about the animals – native as well as introduced species – that share our island home.  Fun and educational classroom activities will be supplemented by regular outdoor activities.  


Children in the Preschool/Kindergarten program must be able to use the bathroom with complete

independence (diapers, training pants, or Pull-ups are not allowed at any time in the preschool program).


Here’s just a small sample of what your Hawaiian Islands Explorer can look forward to this summer:


(For students entering Grades 1-5)


June 7 - August 6, 2021


Lower Elementary (Students entering 1st through 2nd grades)

Upper Elementary (Students entering 3rd through 5th grades)

Discover new worlds and learn more about ocean plants and animals this summer, at Montessori Community School!  

Our popular Summer Discoveries program offers elementary students the opportunity to expand their horizons, stretch their imaginations, and challenge their physical skills.  In-depth studies and hands-on projects will lead our young explorers to a greater understanding of the oceans and its inhabitants.  

With a curriculum divided into sessions, students can experience the complete program or enroll in select sessions.  

Each session is designed with a stand-alone curriculum that is also complementary, for students who enroll for the entire summer.


Here are just a few of the topics that will be explored in fascinating detail:

Oceans of the World

Marine Plants

Marine Invertebrates

Ocean Reptiles

Ocean Birds

Ocean Mammals


The elementary summer curriculum will also include:

Writing Projects

Art Activities

Hands-On Science Activities


Cooking Projects


“The Daily Running Program”


Upper Elementary will spend some afternoons exploring STEM Activities,

including Wonder Workshop CleverBots and Lego, coding, robotics, green screen,

stop motion animation, movie making, photo editing and more!
