Welcome to MacDonald Montessori School
MacDonald Montessori School is a unique non-profit early childhood program that is licensed for 188 children and their families. MacDonald Montessori School provides care and education for children 6 weeks of age through 8 years old. We accept all children in order of request. MacDonald Montessori School does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, creed, color, and national origin, source of payment or disability. Our school is open 6:30 am to 5:30 pm a day, 5 days a week, 12 months a year.
At MacDonald Montessori, parents, teachers and children are all partners of a learning community with strong emphasis placed on each child’s unique abilities in thinking, reasoning, questioning and experimenting in life. All three protagonists, the teachers, the children and the parents, come from many varied cultural and educational backgrounds but together they form one community that sees all children as powerful and competent individuals deserving of an exceptional environment and many varied and complex materials.
The philosophy that guides the teachers of MMS is one that comes from all of our influences: history, traditions, research, extensions of the Montessori philosophy as well as the philosophy of Reggio Emilia.
MacDonald Montessori School provides care and education for children 6 weeks of age through 8 years old. Our school is open 6:30 am to 6:00 pm a day, 5 days a week, 12 months a year.
An aesthetically beautiful environment is a priority for MacDonald Montessori School. In addition we feel the environment should be personally reflective of the children, parents and educators that occupy it
