Learning Environments

"Education should no longer be mostly imparting of knowledge, but must take a new path, seeking the release of human potentialities."

- Maria Montessori     

Montessori education builds a child’s capability to become a fulfilled and productive adult able to contribute to the world—at home, at work, and in their community. Maria Montessori’s observation of human development from birth to adulthood led to an education approach that supports children’s natural development, providing the skills and support to reach their full potential in life. With a strong emotional, behavioral, and moral foundation, children become motivated, active, and independent learners who are prepared for the real world.

Main Square Montessori offers 9 month (academic year) or 12 month (full year) enrollment in both the Toddler Community (15 to 33 months) and the Children’s House (33 months to 6 years).  MSM is an all day program, and enrolled students are expected to attend full time (at least six hours per day), 5 days a week.
