“Never help a child with a task at which he feels he can succeed.” – Maria Montessori

The Montessori School of Madison respects the imagination, mind and heart of each child.  Guided by the work of Maria Montessori, we are dedicated to providing an enriching and challenging educational environment where each child is encouraged to grow to his/her fullest potential academically, emotionally and socially.The child is challenged by the classroom environment which inspires self-paced, individualized and guided discovery.  The curriculum prepares the child for academic success while stimulating creativity, curiosity and a love of learning.The child is respected as an individual.  Self esteem, independent learning and self confidence are fostered by the daily activities of the classroom community.  The child is encouraged to “discover” language, math, art and science, individually and as a group, at their own pace.  As a result, the child begins on a life long process of joyful learning.
The Montessori School of Madison provides Montessori-certified teachers for all of our classrooms.  We believe proper training is necessary to optimize your child’s learning experience.
The child is an essential member of the global community, working for peace and a better world.  Through cooperative activities and communication skills, the child develops a respect for others and a desire for peaceful problem solving.

“Education is a natural process carried out by the child and is not acquired by listening to words but by experiencing in the environment.”
