School Notes

Our mission is to provide an environment where each child grows with a deep appreciation of peace and an ability to work with others to create peace; where each child is valued for the unique being they are, their culture, and their identity, and that they equally value others; where each child knows that they have a place in the world and are part of many systems that rely on their contributions.- Jen Stoll, Owner & Director
  • The mission of Clay-Platte Montessori School is to employ the philosophy and methods of Dr. Maria Montessori and educate young people to their fullest potential, instilling a deep sense of personal independence and responsibility to self, to others, and to our Earth.
  • Our purpose is to provide, through the Montessori philosophy and curriculum, an environment where each child will be free to function and develop individually, naturally and sequentially into the whole child that lies within, realizing the full potential of his/her innate talents.
