The preschool years are the most critical in a child's development.
There is no better way to support a child's cognitive development than by attending a Montessori preschool.
There is no better place to see the Montessori method in action than the Mastro Montessori Preschool and Elementary School in Shrewsbury.
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.

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.
