Enfield Montessori School

  • Thank you for considering the Enfield Montessori School for your child.
  • Current research increasingly supports Dr. Montessori`s conviction that the years from birth to twelve are most critical in a child`s life.
  • This gift of a Montessori education is one of the most important gifts we can ever give our children.
  • For over 50 years, EMS has been inspiring students to become passionate life-long learners, problem solvers and innovative thinkers in a compassionate and nurturing environment.
  • Our school is a place where the child`s academic, social-emotional, and spiritual development is nurtured and challenged at every level to help them develop self-confidence, competency, concentration, critical thinking, compassion, and respect.
  • Our goal is to not only fully prepare the child for their next educational experience and beyond but for life.
