Danville Montessori School was founded in 2000 with four goals in mind.
First, your child's school should be environmentally and eco-friendly.
Second, the school should be a safe haven for learning to take place.
Third, it should be educationally, cognitively, and emotionally supportive.
Finally, as partners in your child's educational career, the school should serve as a family support for the complexities facing today's families and children. It is our passion to share our knowledge, to create life-long mentoring relationships, as well as observe and support the growth and potential in every student that we serve.

School Reviews

1 year ago
After touring, it seems, endless numbers of schools in our area we were quite pleasantly surprised with Danville Montessori School. We knew immediately that we had found the right combination of activities and environment for our son. The fact that DMS offers foreign languages in a gentle, noncompetitive fashion addressed our son''s shy personality. The easy access to the staff and director and their friendly, inviting approach made us feel welcome and included in our son''s school. We would recommend DMS, without question, and please feel free to contact us.
