About Us

The Montessori Farmhouse School is an environmentally-based Montessori educational program whose purpose is to foster independence, critical thinking, respect and responsibility to self,
to others and to the earth. We offer half day and full day classes to children Preschool through Kindergarten. We are dedicated to providing an enriching and challenging educational environment where each child is encouraged to grow to hers or his fullest potential academically, emotionally, spiritually and socially. Through the dynamic partnership of child, parent and teacher, a consistent Montessori framework for learning is developed, offering an “education for life.”

“Knowledge can be best given when there is an eagerness to learn,  so this is the period when the seed of everything can be sown,  the child's mind being like 
a fertile field, ready to receive what will germinate into culture.”

- Maria Montessori

I like to visit the kids at school and greet them with my wagging tail. My job is to help them learn responsibility, compassion and empathy for other living things.
