Doughty Montessori School

  • Doughty Montessori School is located in a beautiful old train station, in the west side of Ann Arbor, Michigan.
  • Children, aged two and half to six are educated in traditional multi-age Montessori classrooms by well-trained and experienced teachers.
  • Doughty Montessori School is based on the teachings and writing of Maria Montessori, who believed that developing the human potential was a path which led far beyond the confines of the classroom.
  • Montessori's deep faith in the human personality developing free from psychological trauma and repression, held for her the vision of "a new man, a new society, a new world." We strive to nurture the emotional and educational needs of every child who attends Doughty Montessori School.

  • Through hands on experiences and an open mind approach, great discoveries are possible.
