Village Montessori School is dedicated to the philosophy and methods of education developed by Maria Montessori.
Dr. Montessori’s study of children led to an awareness of the dynamic importance of the first six years of a child’s life during which intelligence and character are being formed.
The Montessori philosophy is based on love for the child and respect for his/her dignity and worth as a person with the objective of helping each child develop his/her fullest potential Characteristics such as self-confidence, initiative, independence, persistence, increased curiosity, ability to concentrate and a sense of order are encouraged.
The teaching staff at Village Montessori School excels both in education qualifications and years of experience.
They are known for the warm personal approach they bring to the classroom.
All teachers are college graduates and hold degrees in Montessori education.
Many of our teachers have been with us for over 10 years.

My daughter has been attending VMS for the past 2 years and is starting her last year there as a Kindergartener and I couldn''t be happier. There was just a change of ownership over the summer, and things have even gotten better. We''ll be starting our son there in the Fall of 2014 once he''s old enough. Great staff - we love Miss Kelly and Miss Kim!
