Greenhouse Montessori School was established in March 1982 by Anne Hoffman and Nina Clancy.
Nina and Anne believe that the Montessori method of education provides the most effective and fulfilling way to guide a child through his early school years, a critical period for learning and setting patterns which will last a lifetime.
Our goals are two-fold: 1) to provide a Montessori enrichment program, and 2) to provide a It non-institutional" environment for children requiring full or part-time day care.
Each class of twenty four children is taught by a certified Montessori teacher and an assistant teacher, and classes are evenly balanced between younger and older children.
Greenhouse Montessori School welcomes all children regardless of race, creed, color or national origin who are 2 1/2 years old through kindergarten age.
Admission is based on space-availability and agreement by staff and parents that the child is ready and will benefit from the classroom environment.
One of our criteria for readiness is that the child is able to use the toilet independently.
Admission shall not normally be granted on a short-term temporary basis.
