WELCOME TO COUNTRYSIDE MONTESSORI SCHOOL

Thank you for your interest in our school. We hope that you discover the wonderful world of Montessori and you realize the potential of your child at CMS.

At CMS, we believe in creating a peaceful atmosphere where respect toward each other, our community and the environment are an everyday occurrence. It truly is a second home for all of us.
Our school has two Toddler classrooms and two Primary classrooms. Toddler class is for 18 months to 3 years old. Primary class is for 3 to 6 years old, and includes Nursery, Pre-K, Kindergarten and First Grade. The Primary class curriculum contemplates a three year cycle, and we recommend that your child to remain in the same Primary classroom for three consecutive years. There are after-school programs offered throughout the school year.

Children today are constantly exposed to electronics. While this constant exposure to electronic devices has sharpened many skills such as multitasking and improved peripheral vision, it is also diminishing interaction with others, their sense of empathy and their caring for nature. Here at CMS, we value this new generation of children and provide them with long hours of face-to-face interaction with adults and other children and ample opportunity for movement. We at CMS model proper behavior in a positive way.

We hope that this alternative method of education will provide your child with the best mix of education and social development today in order to become a global citizen of tomorrow.



“It is not enough for the teacher to love the child. She must first love and understand the universe. She must prepare herself, and truly work at it.”
