Our World Montessori is a vibrant community of learners. Our children explore and work together in a nurturing environment. Founded in 2004 by AMS-Certified Teacher Jennifer Graham Haggerty, Our World Montessori has grown from a small nursery program to a thriving school serving over 75 children from 15 months through Kindergarten. Our program is child-centered. Children learn through the exploration of self-chosen, hands-on materials. Understanding that children learn at their own pace and have a variety of interests, trained Montessori teachers plan lessons based on individual interest and readiness rather than chronological age. A natural sense of wonder motivates these young learners to explore their connections to the world around them. They are learning how to get along with others as well as understanding each person's responsibility to take care of not only our school environment, but also the wider community and our planet. To meet the needs of our working parents, we offer child care for children in our programs. Our Morningcare program begins at 7:45 a.m., and our Aftercare program is available until 5:30 p.m. Additionally, we have expanded our program to include exciting enrichment days during school breaks as well as a summer camp program for children 18 months old to 6 years old. Our World Montessori is an inclusive community that is committed to the principal of diversity. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, religious or spiritual beliefs, gender, sexual orientation, family configuration, political affiliation, or marital status in the administration of its employment, educational or admissions policies, or tuition assistance programs. We are a member school of the American Montessori Society, the international organization that sets the high professional standards for authentic Montessori programs.
