Montessori School Of Elkhart

Montessori School of Elkhart, Inc. offers a traditional Montessori curriculum for children aged 2 1/2 to 12.
Our teachers utilize their Montessori training as well as their experience and training in other educational methods to meet the individual needs of each child.
The classroom is equipped with Montessori materials plus teaching materials developed in recent years.
The goal of Montessori pre-schools is to provide learning experiences for the child.
The biggest differences lie in the kind of learning experiences each school provides and the methods they use to accomplish this goal.
Montessori educators believe these differences are important because they help shape how a child learns, his/her work habits and his future attitudes toward himself/herself and the world around them.

I was a student at the school years ago and I just move back into town with my family and I`m patiently awaiting a spot in the toddler program. Montessori school here in Elkhart allowed me a strong start to my education which prepared me for my transition to public schools in kindergarten. The teachers that I had are still at the school and I can`t wait to have my daughter enrolled in the toddler program. I truly believe and Montessori and the independence it gives the students and the material and skills that they present the children. Can`t wait for fall!

Every day when I pick up my grandchildren from Montessori they come to the car with big smiles on their faces. It really fills my heart with warmth to see how happy they are. I have such amazing respect for the time the teachers spend with the children and the amount of care they have for each of the children there. They are truely our 'home away from home" during the school year. I hope they understand how much the families appreciate the entire group of women it takes to run the school.

I was extremely pleased with my son's class at the variety of things the school offered. They offered field trips, art and science, gym class, music, and were open later for an after care program since I had to work. My son only attended for two years, one preschool and one Kindergarten year but I wish we knew about them when he was younger because I heard they start at 16 months.

We have a child in the Kindergarten Class at Montessori. We am very thankful for the help I received from the Teachers and Director in working with my son. He had a hard time last year in the younger class soaking up the information he was learning every day. This year he is ready to learn and is coming home with so much to tell me besides who he played with on the playground. I have observed many times and am very pleased with the level of peace he feels when he enters the class.
