Program Characteristics

Decatur Montessori School emphasizes the mental as well as academic development of children by following the original principles of Maria Montessori, the founder of the Montessori system of education.

All day, all year around program

6 weeks to 6 years


The staff at our school works with parents as a team to offer children nurturing and loving programs. Most of the staff members including the teachers and the director, are AMI certified teachers. Other staff members have a clear understanding of Montessori philosophy and method of education.
In addition, we send all staff members for appropriate on-site training and to various workshops around the area for continuing education.

Importance of a Second Lenguage

Decatur Montessori School has native Spanish speakers in each classroom that speak Spanish to our children all the time. Learning Spanish as a second language at an early age will help our children become truly proficient in the language.

Studies have shown that children with a second language score higher on standardized tests and adapt better to different cultures and environments. In addition, learning a second language will give your children an advantage as they grow and compete in an increasingly challenging world.
