Throughout the year North Star invites a variety of guests to come into the classroom. We frequently have parents who share special talents, interests, jobs, and travel experiences with the children. Parents and grandparents often volunteer their time to help celebrate holidays. In addition, we have had authors and musicians come to inspire our students. Each year we invite community members such as firefighters to teach fire safety. To find out more about the different events that take place during the year visit our calendar page.

Our mission is to provide an authentic Montessori experience for children which nurtures the whole child and their development.
The design of our classrooms are well thought out and carefully prepared to stimulate the child's learning. Everything in the classroom is child sized to allow the child to independently move and discover.There is order and beauty in each material the child may choose.Children take off their shoes and wear slippers or house sandals. The rooms are cozy with plenty of natural light, plants, and intimate work spaces. Your child will receive individual attention as she works at her own pace.
Maria Montessori named her first school "Casa dei Bambini" which translated from Italian means Children's House. North Star Montessori teachers work in small groups with children nurturing and encouraging each child's natural desire to learn. Montessori classrooms are a community of learners that enjoy collaboration, independence,order, and love of learning. Montessori curriculum is specifically designed to engage children's learning by preparing everything in the environment to meet the child's needs and development over a period of three years.
