North Star Montessori
Preschool & Kindergarten
Click below to learn more about Montessori education.
Our classrooms are specifically designed to meet the child's developmental and educational needs over a period of three years. Children stay engaged and eager to learn as they progress through our curriculum at their own pace.
North Star students have many opportunities to be decision makers and problem solvers as they learn to move independently throughout the classroom. With hands-on Montessori activities in Math, Science, Reading, Writing, Spanish, World Culture & Geography, Art, Music, and Peace Education, North Star students become active participants in their own education as they pursue their own interests.
Our classrooms are cozy with plenty of natural light, plants, and intimate work spaces, creating a comfortable & happy learning environment for your child.
"Our mission is to provide an authentic Montessori experience which nurtures the whole child and their development."
-Barb Barnes, Director NSM
