Ivy League Montessori School


Ivy League Montessori School is based on the philosophy, teachings, and materials developed by Dr. Maria Montessori. The primary classroom is an environment that encourages social integration for concentration, cooperative learning, peer teaching, and emotional development. Children ages 3-6 learn together in the same setting. The younger children are guided by the teachers and by observing and working with older students.

Children learn to work at a task from beginning to end and develop their self-discipline and capacity for total concentration. Courtesy for others, grace and respect develop naturally as the children grow within the Montessori environment. Montessori is a unique philosophy that allows the child to direct his/her path of learning.

Montessori School

Our mission is to provide a quality educational program. We aim to assist the child in his or her own development by preparing an environment rich in educational materials that will invite hands-on discoveries.

We believe that each child is born as a unique individual. Parents are the most significant adults in a child's life and we strive to create a partnership with each family to create a positive environment for each child. Our goal is to provide excellent education for your child, and we welcome all children and their families.

“The most important period of life is not the age of university studies, but the first one, the period from birth to age six. For this is the time when man’s intelligence itself, his greatest implement, is being formed. At no other age has the child greater need of intelligent help…” – Maria Montessori, MD
