New Vista Montessori School

Tel: (540)342-1173
  • New Vista Montessori School is the Roanoke Valley¡¯s only not-for-profit Montessori school.
  • As a not-for- profit organization all of our income is spent in the areas that most directly affect the students i.e., high quality teachers and school equipment.
  • The Montessori Early Childhood program is designed to meet the needs of children ages 2- 6.
  • Ideally the child would promote into the older classroom at age 3 years and remain with the same teacher for all 3 years.
  • Six years ago, New Vista featured a new class to introduce 2 -early 3 year olds to the Montessori method of learning.
  • This foundation-building class stresses potty training, social skills building, development of fine and gross motor skills, improvement of language and speech, science concepts, and number/letter/shape concepts.
  • The multi-age classrooms provides a backdrop for success in all ages.
