Montessori Country School

  • Montessori Country School is a magical place where the teachers, students and parents are learning together.
  • If you were to visit at any given time, you would notice a calm hum of activity.
  • Students of mixed ages learning and growing together - Preschoolers counting, scrubbing tables, feeding the fish, writing stories, creating art, singing songs finding ways to engage in learning that is as natural as breathing! Elementary children might be exploring astronomers and constellations, diagramming sentences, singing songs about the earth, or working together to take care of the campus.
  • Our campus is located on four acres of woodland property woods for natural play.
  • Our beautiful environments are an integral part of our curriculum.
  • The children learn about the plants and animals that surround them and take pride in caring for the earth.
  • Montessori Country School was founded in 1972.  It is a non-profit 501c3 corporation and is overseen by a Board of Directors.
  • The staff and faculty at MCS have been with the school for many years and the sense of community here is strong and healthy.
  • All of our faculty are trained and certified by national Montessori training programs.
  • Parents are a rich resource for the school and bring to it their interests and talents and generosity.  Visitors are welcome!.
