Montessori on Main is a private school serving children from ages 33 months through 6 years of age. Our preschool and kindergarten program is guided by authentic Montessori principles to reveal each child's innate love of learning. We seek to educate the whole child, applying the Montessori philosophy, in a family-oriented environment.
The Montessori classroom is quiet and relaxed, exciting and full of challenging work that children find fun and rewarding. The carefully created curriculum and purposefully prepared environment is designed to engage the learner. They will concentrate and achieve success through their own desire to succeed. There is nothing like the feeling of accomplishment to build self confidence and a desire to go on to the next challenge.
Since the child is our focus, the Montessori teacher individualizes the curriculum to the needs of each child. Our teachers are kind, patient, nurturing and supportive, allowing the child the time they need to be successful. The children learn respect for self, others, and their environment. We encourage the children to be independent, self motivated, and responsible as they discover who they are and who they can be.
"Our aim is not merely to make the child understand, and still less to force him to memorize, but so to touch his imagination as to enthuse him to his innermost core."
~ Maria Montessori

The extended care, or as we like to call it "The Family Room," is a before and after school program that offers students a time to socialize and learn. The parents extended care needs are met while their children experience a familiar environment.
While still adhering to the Montessori principles of education, the extended care program includes activities such as yoga, gymnasium time, board games, card games, arts and crafts, nature walks and other outside activities.
Montessori in Main is open year round. During the summer, the school continues to follow the same daily schedule with a greater emphasis on cultural studies and the children's physical development. The children will spend more time enjoying outdoor activities in the pleasant summer months. We also know that family schedules and activities change during the summer months, so to accommodate this we do offer flexible summer schedules.
