bullet Our Mission (top)

Charlotte Montessori School is committed to providing an environment for our children to explore and expand the boundaries of their world. Our classrooms meet and challenge the needs of each child, and provide a calm environment for learning and growth. We are committed to using the methods developed by Dr. Maria Montessori that will provide the children with what she termed "an education for life."

Our Philosophy (top)

Our philosophy embraces the educational ideas and practices of Dr. Maria Montessori (1870-1952). She was an Italian doctor, psychologist and educator who devoted her life to improving the traditional structure of educating children. This Montessori inspired philosophy includes:

Regarding the child as an individual with a unique pace of learning and range of talents;

Providing an educational environment tailored to an investigative process of learning; and

Training children in wide - ranging fields geared to prepare them for all areas of life.

We inspire children to care about learning, and to become self - starters who set their own high standards for work and social interaction. Using Montessori based applications and materials within a traditional curriculum; our teachers instill in our children the desire to know, to inquire and to expand the boundaries of their lives.

Our School (top)

Charlotte Montessori School was founded in 1971 by a group of concerned parents who wanted more from education than was being offered by the other schools in Charlotte. Our school is the oldest Montessori School in Charlotte, and one of the oldest in the Southeast. We are located in the Historic Dilworth area of Charlotte and are a part of the "Southend" district of new shops, restaurants and housing. This is a great setting for the school, and we are ideally located for Charlotte Welcome Picture Metro Area residents, as well as for people working in uptown Charlotte. We moved in to our current location in 1995, completely renovated the building and are fortunate to have a bright, attractive facility in which to educate our children.

We offer a Montessori education for children ages 15 months through Kindergarten. Our five classrooms include three Primary classes and two Transitional Kindergarten /Kindergarten classes. Our teachers have college degrees and either have a Montessori Certification or are working towards that degree. Most of our assistants are also degreed. The teachers and assistants are the key to your child's educational and emotional growth, and ours are exceptional!
