Woodinville Montessori School - North Creek Campus

Woodinville Montessori School - North Creek Campus Photo #1 - Maria Montessori observed that early childhood is a critical time for learning. The 3-6-year-old child goes about effortlessly soaking up information, forming impressions and habits, all of which become the basis for future learning and behavior. Our Early Childhood Program is adapted to the unique and ephemeral learning abilities of the young child.

Woodinville Montessori School - North Creek Campus Photo #8 - The Montessori Elementary Program provides the 6-12-year-old child limitless opportunities to apply his great powers of imagination and capacity for hard work. The deeper concentration, increased attention span, good organizational skills and self-direction that are often a result of the Montessori Early Childhood classroom allow these children to take on some rather complex projects.

School Reviews

My son is in a lower elementary class (mixed age 1st-3rd grade class). I was immediately impressed with the school during our prospective student tour. The student guide, a 3rd grader assigned to my child, was well spoken and kind. The classroom was quiet; all the children were working independently or in pairs. They seemed very engaged. We enrolled our son for first grade. Our next experience with the classroom was on his birthday when my husband and I were invited to bring photos of our child from each year of his life. The kids sat in a circle while my son walked around the circle holding each photo. All the kids were so polite and asked many questions about the photo. Afterward, there were many kids that volunteered to help my son pass out his birthday treats. It was obvious that these kids are kind to each other. As of late; I have become even more impressed by the school's handling of COVID-19. The remote learning that started last spring was a smooth transition for us as parents and for my child. I enjoyed seeing my son's interactions with his teachers on zoom. They are patient and caring. They're able to teach difficult concepts—he was learning long subtraction with regrouping to a first grader over zoom! I appreciate the open communication lines I have with the teachers. Emails are answered very quickly (within the same day) and we are also able to communicate using the SeeSaw app. My son is now back in in-person school. I am so impressed by how safely and thoughtfully they have opened the school back up. WMS has been a blessing to our family.
