The preschool years are the most critical in a child's development.

We are an AMI certified Montessori school that offers children from 15 months and up a unique learning environment based on the scientifically established Montessori method.
The Montessori method, uniformly recommended by early childhood educators and pediatric psychologists, emphasizes hands-on self-guided instruction with specially developed Montessori materials that encourage independent learning.
Each student explores the world at his or her pace.
At Mastro Montessori, children are free to be themselves and explore their passions in a warm, safe, nurturing environment.
Conveniently located off of Highway 35, our beautiful campus features an outdoor garden and play area.

School Notes

  • The Vincent S. Mastro Montessori Academy was founded in 1968 in accordance with the standards established by the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI), the descendant organization from Maria Montessori and the recognized authority on Montessori pedagogy and teacher training. The program consists of two primary classrooms for ages three to six and one lower elementary class for ages six to nine as well as an early preschool program for ages 18 months to three. Each class is directed by a professional Montessori directress who has earned an AMI Diploma in addition to an undergraduate degree. AMI training for both primary and elementary teaching consists of nine months of full-time postgraduate training at a certified teacher-training institute. All instruction, including practical life exercises, sensorial materials, language and mathematics in the primary classes and cosmic education in the elementary class is conducted in accordance with the principles of AMI.
