Children are helped along....

...their natural path of development. Dr. Montessori believed that the goal of early childhood education should not be to fill the child with facts from a pre-selected course of studies, but rather to cultivate their own natural desire to learn.

Children develop skills for living.

Children are taught an "I can do it" attitude that will ensure their future success in all aspects of their life. We nurture self confidence, self esteem, self control, the abilities to engage, concentrate, and make good choices.

We foster a life long love of learning.

Learning activities are individualized where each child engages in a learning task that particularly appeals to him, that are geared to his needs and level of readiness. Consequently, he works at his own rate, repeating the task as often as he likes, thus experiencing a series of successful achievement.

About Concord Montessori School

The Concord Montessori School was established in 1974, and is a member of the North American Montessori Teacher's Association (NAMTA). We are located in Concord, Massachusetts. The school year is from September through May.

  • Established in 1974
  • Member of the North American Montessori Teacher's Association (NAMTA)
  • Pre-Primary program for 1.9 to three year olds
  • Primary program for ages 2.9 through six

Our school's philosophy is to foster independence, love of learning, and a positive sense of self in a prepared environment. Every child is encouraged to function independently at his or her own developmental rate. We welcome but do not require parent participation in the classroom.

Through activities in daily living, a child's fine motor skills, care of the environment, care of themselves, as well as grace and courtesy are developed. Once in our primary classrooms, the sensorial materials develop the skills of observation in every sense, develop rich vocabulary, as well as an appreciation of the materials used. Language is developed through many materials in the classroom. Stories, songs, poems, the names used in geography and science, and the tactile sandpaper letters all contribute to a multi-faceted approach to learning. Math concepts are initiated with concrete materials including sorting, counting and solving problems. Eventually, children move on to use the many math materials including the beautiful glass bead stair and chains which so clearly reinforce learning. Montessori developed all of her materials to initially isolate a concept before unifying ideas.
