The mission of CCMS is to educate children according to the Montessori philosophy and encourage the full development of each child’s unique potential.
CCMS promotes the development of independence in each child within the context of a mixed-age community.

Our programs promote learning, creativity and community for each child in the context of his or her family – his first community.
Parents are integrated into their child’s development in the school.
Staff use individual observation to create a learning plan for each child and communicate regularly with parents about their child’s progress.
Families are invited to participate in Crossway’s extended services and events, including nutrition and child development workshops.
