Putting Your Child’s Future in Motion

The Montessori Children’s School, Inc. believes that each child is a unique individual with his or her own style of learning. Children need to learn at their own pace and when stimulated properly, learn to spontaneously thrive in a positive environment because they are innately inquisitive, curious and creative. As parents, we have a deep desire to find the best for our child. We seek the perfect environment in which the child can develop to his or her full potential and blossom into a happy, confident, and self-motivated adult. You will find this environment at Montessori Children’s School. We maintain a deep conviction that a Montessori education allows the child to build a positive attitude toward learning and toward life. It is the mission of Montessori Children’s School to foster a growth mindset, a life-long love of learning and to prepare happy, competent, self-motivated, and responsible leaders.


We're always up to something good. Follow along and don't miss a minute.


We would recommend this school to anyone with children. Very welcoming to new students and families. Very close community that includes anyone who wants to be involved. There was a noticeable difference in our child once she began at the school, a definite and welcome difference from public schools.

My son has attended the Montessori Children's School the past 3 years and I have found it to be a wonderful experience for both him and our family. I love that the environment in his classroom is created for his developmental level and that every item in the room has a purpose. Montessori education has been a learning experience for our family, in that it is not like a traditional preschool/kindergarten program
