Canandaigua Montessori School

  • Established in 1973, our non-profit organization has been devoted to promoting standards of excellence in Montessori education. Canandaigua Montessori School provides a rich and supportive community for children's growth and development as students. Through the educational methods developed by Dr. Maria Montessori, Canandaigua Montessori School seeks to encourage the acquisition of skills and attitudes that will form the basis of a love and desire for life-long learning and discovery.
  • In addition, we hope to guide children to become independent, self-fulfilled and responsible individuals and members of their communities.
