Founded as a Parent Governed school in 1967, we view education as a partnership between parents, children, teachers, and our community. As a not-for-profit organization, our focus is on our children and their early development.
The Columbia Montessori School’s philosophy stems from the world-renown physician and child development pioneer, Maria Montessori. She believed every child is primarily self-motivated to learn and is therefore primarily self-taught. Our goal as a school is to help children develop a love of learning and a sense of responsible independence. These skills will be carried throughout their lives.
The Columbia Montessori School is a licensed Child Care Facility for children between the ages of 4 weeks through 6 years.
“It is true we cannot make a genius, we can only give each individual the chance to fulfill potential to become an independent, secure and balanced human being.” Maria Montessori
