Head of School’s Welcome

Welcome to our school. North Shore Montessori has brought together a dedicated community of teachers and parents for more than 45 years. Our priority is always the children – and each child’s educational journey. Our school is a place to learn, to grow, and to be part of a family.

We are a co-operative model school, engaging parents, grandparents and care-givers as partners. This partnership will lay the vital foundation for your child to develop into a confident, independent problem solver who is ready to absorb and discover all the world has to offer! We offer a variety of schedule options, early- and after-school care and numerous enrichments programs. Our days are filled with art, music, and indoor and outdoor activities.

The heart of our school is our staff. Many of our staff members have been with us for over 10 years! In our classrooms, our teachers are trained and knowlegeable guides who motivate our students to think and problem solve while supporting them in the learning process. The Montessori tenets are present in all of our classroom environments: multi-aged diverse classrooms; prepared environments that allow choice within structure; teachers who act as role models and facilitators; and an atmosphere of grace, courtesy and respect.

To truly understand how North Shore Montessori is unique, you and your child should experience the educational environment yourselves. I invite you to come observe our children in action as they engage, interact, mentor and lay the foundation needed to be successful for years to come.

I look forward to greeting you as you come through our doors the first time and every time thereafter. You are always welcome at NSMS!
