Montessori School Of Madison is serving the Connecticut shoreline community since 1986.
Our school's aim is to help children build the foundations for a lifetime of creative learning, based on Dr.

I am thrilled with my son's experience at the Montessori School of Madison. The teachers are warm and welcoming, and incredibly skilled at delivering an enriching Montessori experience. I feel that they value my child as a unique individual, something that is very important to me as a parent. The classroom is beautiful and meticulously maintained. I will be sending my second child there in the fall and would absolutely recommend it.

This is a fantastic school. The atmosphere here is nurturing, warm, and caring. The facility is specifically set up to appeal to each child's sense of independence in a "prepared" environment. They offer creative movements each week, and the teachers incorporate nature-based learning into the classroom through activities such as arranging visits by a bird rescue group to "growing" butterflies right in the classroom.

My sons absolutely love the school. It has been a positive experience for my boys. They have learned so much. I am amazed by their academic growth while attending Montessori. The teachers are patient, caring and nurturing. They help each student feel confidence and success. I only wish the school offered elementary education.

The Montessori School of Madison has beautiful program. The staff are so experienced and very nurturing. Both my daughters truly enjoyed their classroom experience. The space is open and bright. The activities provided for the children are thoughtful and unique (like the one-way glass bird feeder so children can view the birds in the reading area). The staff was also diligent and proactive about managing both my daughters'' serious food allergies, which was critically important to us. We can not say enough good things about our experience at Madison Montessori.
