School Notes

  • We are recognized and approved by the Maryland State Department of Education, and licensed by the MSDE Office of Child Care. 
  • At Top Hat Montessori School focuses on curriculum guided by trained teachers, that provide children with innumerable opportunities for exploration and discovery.
  • We guide children intellectually, academically, socially, and emotionally in their preparation for life. 
  • We believe that education is an exciting process of discovery that builds a foundation for critical thinking, self-discipline, and a life-long love of learning. We understand that children learn best when they are motivated by their own innate need to explore and discover. 
  • We respect that children and adolescents should be encouraged to progress at their own pace, regardless of age or ability. We are committed to practicing authentic Montessori to help children reach their full potential, while instilling values of civic responsibility and compassion.
