Welcome to Katherine Michiels School
Since 1976, Katherine Michiels School (KMS) has served Bay Area children and families. We pride ourselves on providing high-quality, affordable education within a nurturing, child-centered environment. Our mission is to foster each child's experience of the world so that he or she can blossom to potential and become a compassionate, autonomous and contributing member of society.
KMS has chosen the humanistic, progressive pedagogies of the Reggio Emilia educational approach and Council in Schools as our educational compass. Both approaches see the child as a competent and equal partner in the educational journey.
Tour & Open Houses
The KMS After School Program gives kids the opportunity to choose from working on an art project in our beautiful atelier, cuddling up to a good book in our cozy library, building a city in our industrious "moon room", eating a healthy snack next to our outdoor garden, or some good old-fashioned digging and playing around in our glorious yard. Our program offers afternoon learning, fun, art, food, enrichment, games, and care for grades K-5, five days a week, until the clock strikes 6.
In addition to our After School program, we have after school enrichment classes. Our enrichment classes are fun! Children can choose:
