At Montessori Children`s Community, we provide your child with the best possible educational experience.
We nurture independence and encourage collaboration.  Development of cooperation rather than exams produces more mature, creative, and socially-adept children. We go far beyond the simple memorization of facts and formulas, and far beyond the mechanics of the basic curriculum.
We are engaged in teaching children to think deeply, to figure things out for themselves, and to be their own best teacher.
We help them to see the real connections between things.
We encourage you to observe in our classrooms, and see first hand how our classrooms are so unique!.

School Notes

  • Montessori children are uniquely adaptable. They learn to work independently and in groups. They are encouraged to make decisions from an early age and become problem solvers who are able to make appropriate decisions and manage their time well. They are encouraged to exchange ideas and discuss their work freely with others. Their good communication skills ease the way into new settings.

I can't imagine a better more nurturing school. My children have been encouraged to learn at their own pace, they are respectful, confident children who love school and are curious learners. The staff is amazing and so dedicated to each child. Truly an amazing school!

We have been so happy with mcc. The teachers are caring and nurturing. The children are encouraged,challenged and love to learn. Our older children transitioned so easily after 6th grade and we attribute their continued success to the amazing start they got at MCC.
