Puddletown School

Puddletown School is a Montessori preschool and elementary school. We strive to foster a sense of self-trust in each child.
Children have an innate hunger for learning and independence. Self-trust and confidence are important parts of developing independence.
Even as they make mistakes, children are able to enjoy each learning process.
This is especially evident when confidence is not tied to ability but rather to a sense of self-worth.
Puddletown School is an environment where children are free to explore and create in an atmosphere of respect.
