The Maria Montessori Center (The MMC) was started in 1981. It serves children (ages 3 years to 8th grade) and their families. The school consists of three Preschool-Kindergarten classrooms (ages 3-6), two Lower Elementary classrooms (grades 1-3), and one Upper Elementary building (grades 4-8).
The philosophy at Maria Montessori Center is based on the belief that each child is a unique individual.Our goal is to help children feel confident and comfortable in relating needs and feelings to others and to have positive self-esteem.
Our Whole Child approach — based on the Montessori Method— concentrates on skills that include early literacy, logical thinking, problem solving, social understanding, physical coordination, creativity and positive character traits, such as cooperation and self-control.
