Doughty Montessori School is located in a beautiful old train station, in the west side of Ann Arbor, Michigan.
Children, aged two and half to six are educated in traditional multi-age Montessori classrooms by well-trained and experienced teachers.
Doughty Montessori School is based on the teachings and writing of Maria Montessori, who believed that developing the human potential was a path which led far beyond the confines of the classroom.
Montessori's deep faith in the human personality developing free from psychological trauma and repression, held for her the vision of "a new man, a new society, a new world." We strive to nurture the emotional and educational needs of every child who attends Doughty Montessori School.
We use traditional Montessori methods and theories to give each child the opportunity to learn at their own pace in a “prepared environment”.
Through hands on experiences and an open mind approach, great discoveries are possible.
The primary goal of D.M.S.
is to focus on the whole child, to help each child reach full potential.
The aim of Montessori education is to foster peaceful, competent, responsive children who are life long learners.
By creating the most beneficial environment for your child, our staff shows their commitment and dedication to this philosophy.
Students at Doughty Montessori School are actively involved with their own learning.
Experiencing and discovering the materials at their own pace, growing in self esteem and cultivating their own desire to learn, becoming autonomous learners.
