Our Mission

Each morning, your child wakes up full of energy and enthusiasm, eager to embrace the world and everything in it. Each day they experience delight in exploring and celebrating new accomplishments. As a parent, you want your child's natural curiosity and awe of discovery to be encouraged, just as you do at home. You want a rich, varied environment, where your child can learn academic and life lessons, make first friends, and have a wonderful time.

At Cottage Montessori, this is our joy
and our commitment to you.

Love of Learning

When your family joins our school community, you can feel confident that your child will be appreciated as an individual and respected as a natural explorer. You can rest assured that your child's teachers are also your partners, dedicated to growing and nurturing your child's lifelong love of learning.

Close-Knit Parent Community

Our small, home-based program comprised of
only ten families allows for lots of communication between parents and teachers, many opportunities for parent involvement, and a great, close-knit parent community.

We host many events throughout the year, including family picnics, parent potlucks, Mother's Day Tea, Dads' Breakfast, and holiday celebrations.
