"The absorption of the environment is an intellectual activity. It is a psychic necessity that the child explores the environment; it satisfies his spirit. After he has had the satisfaction of observing one thing that interests him, he goes on until he is attracted by something else. In this way the child can walk for miles."

~ Dr. Maria Montessori, London Lectures, 1946

Nido Ages 6 weeks – 18 months

While we know that the best place for the infant is the home environment, many parents in today’s world have to go out to work, so we want to provide an environment for the young child as close to the home environment as possible. Our AMI-certified Nido teachers are trained to support the social and emotional growth of these very young children.

Young Children's Community (YCC) Ages 1.5–3 Years

The Young Children’s Community (YCC) at Butler Montessori is a “home away from home,” a cozy and safe place for your increasingly curious toddler to experience the world outside his or her home. Our AMI-certified YCC teachers are trained to support the social and emotional growth of these young children.

Primary Ages 3–6 Years

Although lessons feel like fun, our students are actually creating the foundation for handwriting, mathematics, science, and more. A Montessori education allows preschool and kindergarten students to develop a passion for learning and to move at their own pace.

Elementary Ages 6–12 Years

From hiking to poetry, our students love learning because each day is different. They have the ability to choose "work" that interests them and explore our indoor and outdoor environments. Students learn at their own pace while developing concentration, focus, independence, and leadership skills.

Intermediate Ages 12–15 Years

Adolescence is the period when your child transitions from childhood to a young adult. Our Adolescent program offers a safe space to learn and grow during the adolescent years. It's where school doesn't feel like school and every day is different. The lessons learned here build the foundation for life beyond school.
