FORTY YEARS OF EXCELLENCE. Montessori arrived in Midland in 1970 when a group of interested parents formed the Saginaw Valley Montessori Association. The name was later changed to Midland Montessori School, Inc., to better reflect the commitment to the community. The school opened in 1971 in rented facilities and operated in several rented locations before finding a place of it's own.
MUCH HAS CHANGED OVER THE LAST 40 YEARS and our school now provides one of the most outstanding facilities dedicated to early childhood education in the Midland area. On over 9,000 square feet, Midland Montessori School offers a total of seven classrooms, two of which include a child-accessible kitchen, a large indoor gym and even a library with two computers! In addition, we have multiple outdoor playground structures, a fenced-in grass area and a bike path. Ample amounts of parking is available.
THE MISSION OF MIDLAND MONTESSORI SCHOOL is to provide an environment based on real life experiences and reflections which encourage children to develop Respect, Responsibility and Resourcefulness.
OUR HIGHLY EDUCATED AND MONTESSORI CERTIFIED TEACHERS are the pride of our school and provide a loving and child-centered education based on the philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori. Most of our teachers have been with the school for over ten years and provide continuity in your child's education.
MIDLAND MONTESSORI SCHOOL ACCOMMODATES children from the age of six weeks up to kindergarten. We are proud of our diverse student body and our non-discriminating environment. Midland Montessori School is open to all children regardless of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, handicap or disability. Please feel free to call or email to schedule a tour. We still have spots available and are accepting applications.
OUR SCHOOL IS AFFILIATED with the Michigan Montessori Society and is a full member of the American Montessori Society. We are fully licensed as a childcare provider by the state of Michigan. We are a non-profit organization, and are run by an elected board of directors in collaboration with the school's administration.
