Our World Montessori program is child centered. Children learn through the exploration of self-chosen, hands on materials. Understanding that children learn at their own pace and have a variety of interests, teachers plan lessons based on individual interest and readiness rather than chronological age.

- Our World Montessori is a vibrant community of learners. Our children explore and work together in a nurturing environment. Founded in 2004 by AMS-Credentialed Teacher Jennifer Graham Haggerty, Our World Montessori has grown from a small nursery program to a thriving school serving over 75 children from 18 months through Kindergarten. A natural sense of wonder motivates these young learners to explore their connections to the world around them. They are learning how to get along with others as well as understanding each person`s responsibility to take care of not only our school environment, but also the wider community and our planet.
