Why Choose Montessori for Your Child?

Merrimack Valley Montessori School proudly offers the Montessori method to children for their growth and learning. This method encourages self-paced, hands-on, challenging, and collaborative learning in which students can feel joy participating. Our students grow into creative, innovative, independent thinkers, ready to solve problems and ultimately change the world. Many prominent global figures credit their success to receiving a Montessori education. Unlike traditional educational settings, we focus on helping our students develop a genuine love of learning. Our Montessori curriculum offers students a large spectrum of hands-on, carefully designed materials covering topics like math, arts, language, physical and natural sciences, and practical life. We emphasize concrete, experiential learning at a young age and gradually move their education toward abstract comprehension as a student gets older.

How Is Montessori Different From Traditional Education?

Parents choose Montessori schools over traditional schools because of how their child’s education is different. An elementary Montessori education’s foundation is helping children find their place in this world. We help them understand how life started and why we’re here today while exploring language, communication, and numeracy from multiple perspectives. Students also engage in multidisciplinary and interconnected learning that inspires them to expand their knowledge with a hands-on method. Montessori classes differ from traditional educations in their teacher-to-student ratios, with an ideal 20 to 24 students per classroom. We teach in a prepared environment to support Maria Montessori’s devised structure and pedagogy, where mixed-age groups of children learn together through their work.
