- For more than 40 years, The Montessori School has served as a non-profit, private education institution for children ages 3 to 12. We are dedicated to assisting families with the intellectual, social, emotional, and physical development of their children in accordance with the principles and philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori. Our highly trained, credentialed teachers nurture and cultivate each child`s curiosity while providing a strong foundation for continued academic success.
- The Montessori School provides a warm, vibrant, educational home designed to foster a love of learning and help all children reach their fullest potential at their own unique pace. We strive to educate the whole child and to inspire children to be caring, socially responsible participants in their community and world. Our carefully prepared classrooms are staffed with Montessori-certified head teachers and specially trained staff.
- Multi-age classrooms allow the children to learn from one another and to be valued contributors to the classroom community.
