Bedford Montessori School

  • Bedford Montessori School was founded in 1984 to provide a warm, friendly and creative learning environment for children from Bedford and surrounding communities.
  • Our curriculum is based on the philosophy and work of Maria Montessori.
  • We believe that children between the ages of 2 and 6 need to work in an environment equipped with a rich choice of stimulating materials.
  • The children are free to make their own work choices.
  • They are given lessons based on their interests and readiness.
  • Through this work they develop a sense of order, an ability to concentrate, and the coordination to handle materials with increased skill.
  • Independence and a positive self-image result from the development of these basic abilities.
