Greenhouse Montessori School

  • Greenhouse Montessori School was established in March 1982 by Anne Hoffman and Nina Clancy.
  • Nina and Anne believe that the Montessori method of education provides the most effective and fulfilling way to guide a child through his early school years, a critical period for learning and setting patterns which will last a lifetime.
  • Our goals are two-fold: 1) to provide a Montessori enrichment program, and 2) to provide a It non-institutional" environment for children requiring full or part-time day care.
  • Each class of twenty four children is taught by a certified Montessori teacher and an assistant teacher, and classes are evenly balanced between younger and older children.
  • Greenhouse Montessori School welcomes all children regardless of race, creed, color or national origin who are 2 1/2 years old through kindergarten age.
  • Admission is based on space-availability and agreement by staff and parents that the child is ready and will benefit from the classroom environment.
  • One of our criteria for readiness is that the child is able to use the toilet independently.
  • Admission shall not normally be granted on a short-term temporary basis.

My daughter spent 3 years at Greenhouse, preschool through kindergarten. She thrived there. The teachers were all great. They clearly paired lead teachers with assistant teachers with their strengths in mind. There's always a nurturing one to help with difficult morning departure. When I''d pickup my daughter she was often excited to show me a work, so we''d sit and do one together for a few minutes before going home.
