Montessori is an alternative program offered for preschool and Kindergarten age children. The curriculum is a blend of the Montessori philosophy and the UCS Learning Standards. Maria Montessori’s timeless philosophy guides children’s learning in a nurturing environment. Children learn by manipulating materials, which develop meaningful practical skills and academic knowledge.  Creativity, respect, reasonable behavior, self-discipline, and self-motivation are encouraged. Classes are multi-age. It is important to note that participation in this program does not guarantee future placement at Messmore Elementary School.
