Welcome to MacDonald Montessori School
MacDonald Montessori School is a unique non-profit early childhood program that welcomes close to 200 children and their families.  Children range in age from 6 weeks to 8 years. Our school is open 6:30 am to 6:00 pm a day, 5 days a week, 12 months a year. 
We are located in the culturally vibrant West 7th area of St. Paul. Our urban location also brings us into close relation with the Mississippi River and many other environmental inspirations.

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.
