Montessori Country Day School

  • In accordance with the philosophy and pedagogical methods of Maria Montessori, the Montessori Country Day School community, consisting of teachers, staff and parents, makes it their goal to provide quality, child-centered, individualized education for children ages 12 months through 13 years.
  • We all work together to develop responsible, critical-thinking, confident, powerful, and caring members of society.
  • Through the manipulation of hands-on materials, students develop independence, confidence, self-direction, self-discipline, a positive attitude toward school and a life-long love of learning.
  • Children enjoy freedom of movement and choice within a well-planned, low pressure, child-paced, prepared environment.
  • This environment, designed with clear and carefully defined limits, meets the needs of a multi-aged, heterogeneous grouping of students.
