Every school that you encounter will have its own education philosophy. Monarch Montessori's philosophy centers around the principle of individualism. Students perceive themselves as capable of making their own choices, while in constant relationship with other students and guides in the classroom.
Monarch Montessori School pledges to leave our local community better than we found it. Here's how we can accomplish this goal:
Monarch Montessori School pledges to pay all employees a living wage.
Monarch Montessori School pledges to subsidize public transportation costs for all employees, reducing our carbon footprint.
Monarch Montessori School pledges to encourage career advancement by offering paid training including a six-month Management course for teachers interested in managing a childcare facility.
Monarch Montessori School pledges to set aside at least 18% of all open slots for families who are eligible for the subsidized child care/voucher program.
Monarch Montessori School awards a scholarship/financial aid to one family per year. Scholarships/financial aid is based on need and awarded on a 12-month basis. We've awarded a scholarship to one family for the 2023/2024 school year. Scholarships/financial aid is awarded between August 1 and September 30 of each calendar year. To inquire about eligibility for the 2024/2025 school year, please contact the office.
What is the Montessori Method?
Montessori is an education philosophy and practice that fosters rigorous, self-motivated growth for children and adolescents in all areas of their development, with a goal of nurturing each child's natural desire for knowledge, understanding and respect (AMI, 2021).
Montessori for Preschool
Montessori preschool centers around the premise that a child learns through play. Each activity is carefully designed to use their experiences to teach concepts and ideas. The classroom engineers individual exploration.
Montessori for Elementary School
What sets Montessori apart in the elementary years is the individually-paced curriculum that challenges children academically while safeguarding their sense of well-being. Students are challenged to contribute as members of their community, think critically about the world around them and lean in to the learning process. The classroom affords every opportunity for students to work individually or in small groups at tables or on the floor. Spaces are uncluttered and promote mindfulness.
Each Classroom at Monarch Montessori Provides:
Individual learning plans for each student
At least 1 Montessori-certified teacher
A maximum of 15 students per-class (age-dependent)
Multi-age classroom activities
A choice of work
Small group lessons
Freedom of movement
Time management skills

Monarch Montessori's infant room provides care for a total of 6 infants, six weeks to twelve months. Should you wish to register, we recommend planning ahead. We can hold an infant spot for up to 30 days. This means, you will need to plan for your child to be on campus within 30 days of paying the registration fee. Children are not permitted to share cribs. Full-time enrollment is preferable.
Monarch Montessori School requires a 12-month commitment and issues a contract after application is made and has been approved. We understand that life can change suddenly. Per our policy, should you need to leave prior to your 12-month anniversary, we will require one month's tuition in addition to what you currently owe at the time your withdrawal letter is submitted.
