An Education for Life
Takoma Montessori School (TMS) is an independent pre-and-primary school, serving children between the ages of 2 to 6 years old. TMS is guided by the philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori.
Montessori is a method of education that is based on self-directed activity, hands-on learning and collaborative play. In Montessori classrooms children make creative choices in their learning, while the classroom and the teacher offer age-appropriate activities to guide the process. Children work in groups and individually to discover and explore knowledge of the world and to develop their maximum potential.
Our children will thrive in a nurturing and safe environment where a small class size will ensure that every child is a special person and will be given the opportunity to develop at his or her own pace with the right level of encouragement and challenge.
It is our vision that children completing the TMS educational program will be well nurtured, self-confident, peaceful children with a life-long passion for learning & exploration and always striving for excellence. They will have developed skills that have awakened the human spirit and will make them amazing citizens of the world.
We proudly embrace our diversity and appreciate the diversity of our school community. Our teachers have had excellent experience and are passionate about what they do. The children will be learning from people who really care about education and believe in the Montessori Method.
The TMS staff are committed to building a three-fold partnership between: the child, the parents and staff; one that fosters respect, positive communication & interpersonal relationships that are supportive of the mission of Takoma Montessori School.
We pride ourselves on our communication with parents and provide a warm and welcoming environment for all our families.
We look forward to welcoming you to our school.
