CHILD Montessori School Company Information

CHILD Montessori School is a non-profit private school founded upon the Montessori approach to childhood development. We recognize that small children are feeling and thinking persons in the most dramatic stages of emotional and cognitive development-during the early years, from birth to the age of eight, the adult-to-come is shaped within the child. We have been offering excellence in education since 1986 for children aged 2 years through grade 5. In addition to the main educational program, CHILD Montessori offers Summer and Extended Day programs. CHILD Montessori School began operations in January, 1986 when the founder, Jean Carol Stein, opened a primary level classroom. Her goal was to create a relaxed environment that would still enhance the learning of children on all levels. Her vision was to gently guide them with individual academic support while allowing each child to recognize his or her inner potential and talents. The school grew rapidly, and by 1989 had expanded to three classrooms, added both pre-primary and elementary programs, and had over 40 students. In 1993 the school moved to its current facility, which was designed to accommodate all facets of a Montessori program. CHILD Montessori's programs were specifically developed to assist children during their most formative years. The values and unique style of teaching and learning at CMS quickly helped the school gain recognition within the community. The school initially focused on children aged 3-6, and subsequently expanded to provide programs for children aged 2 through grade 5, due to parental requests.
