Little Star School Photo #1
  • Little Star School has been serving the children of the Methow Valley since 1982.
  • Our school provides a rich learning environment that gives children the opportunity to develop self-esteem, healthy habits of communication, and their own unique creativity.
  • The Montessori Method considers the total human being - his/her physical, intellectual, social and spiritual needs.
  • The mixed age grouping allows for rich social interaction; the older child finds a sense of accomplishment in helping a younger classmate, the little ones find role models and a sense of where they are headed by watching the older children.
  • Social skills and confidence blossom.  With a small teacher-child ratio, we are able to give each child the individual attention s/he needs.
  • Our school is dedicated to ensuring that children of the Methow Valley have the opportunity for a healthy and joyful early childhood education.
  • Cultivating children's natural curiosity and creativity lies at the heart of our Montessori program.
  • We encourage each child to develop as a whole person and acquire a life long love of learning.
