Founded in 1962, Manor Montessori was the first Montessori school established in the state of Maryland.
It is also one of the few Montessori schools to have constructed its own facility, in Potomac, which was specifically designed for children working in a Montessori environment.
The Manor Montessori School provides a warm and nurturing atmosphere for children between the ages of three and nine.
At Manor Montessori, we have a wonderful, fun and enriching Summer Day Camp which incorporates the Montessori method of teaching.
Our camp teachers combine the use of the Montessori materials with daily arts & crafts projects, as well as fun indoor and outdoor activities.
Some of these activities include swimming, tennis, music, cooking, and free-play.
Our staff’s dedication to the philosophy of Dr.
Maria Montessori, along with strict adherence to her principles and practices, has been the reason for our success over a forty year period.
Our enrollment and our facilities have both seen steady growth throughout the years.
Our staff members regularly attend local and national Montessori workshops.
