Welcome to Montessori Discovery School
You are embarking on a wonderful, yet challenging process: finding the right program for your child and your family. Since Montessori Discovery School (MDS) was founded in 1974, we have welcomed many children and helped many parents choose what program is best for their child.
This is a place where children share responsibility for their own education by selecting their learning activities from within a structured framework. They help to create a caring classroom community where all are valued and respected. The children also share in caring for their environment: feeding classroom animals, cleaning spills, and putting their work away. During their years here, children are guided by certified Montessori teachers and trained assistants, so they may truly develop to their greatest potential.
As MDS children navigate the rest of their lives, their MDS education lays a strong foundation that serves them well and helps them develop as individuals. With the love of learning, curiosity, self reliance, self confidence and respect for others gained at MDS, children are ready to meet life head-on and enjoy doing so.
Come, explore the MDS Montessori world and find out what joyful discoveries await you, your child, and your family!
