Montessori Children's Room

  • Montessori Children's Room was founded in 1985 and follows the philosophy developed by Dr. Maria Montessori some 90 years ago.
  • She stated, "It is true we cannot make a genius, we can only give each individual the chance to fulfill his potential to become an independent, secure and balanced human being." The mission of the Montessori Children's Room is to foster development of the whole child through a nurturing and stimulating prepared environment.
  • Our primary goal is to help children reach their full potential by encouraging curiosity and creativity, which leads to a life long enthusiasm for learning.
  • The teachers at Montessori Children's Room are qualified specialists in early childhood education.
  • They are professionally trained Montessori instructors who help guide the children through the classroom that has been carefully planned for their developmental needs.
  • The self-correcting materials are used as the child's best teacher.

School Reviews

I can't say enough about how important MCR has been to our lives. Our son has been enrolled at MCR since he was four years old and he'll finish sixth grade this year. MCR is a wonderful place.
