Welcome to North American Montessori
Founded in 1976, we are a family owned and operated business with three schools in the St. Louis area.
Early childhood education is often on parents’ minds as soon as they realize they need it. Whether you are expecting, have a young child that is ready for a daycare setting, or just want to know more about childcare options that are right for your family, researching the choices you have is an important part of making an educated decision.
At North American Montessori Child Care, Inc., we offer both full-time and part-time childcare at our three locations:
We understand that choosing the right daycare center and childcare is a decision you don’t make lightly. That’s why we have offered a caring environment for children from infancy into their preschool years, up through pre kindergarten, for over 40 years. This time in their lives is full of growth and change, and we tailor their experience in our safe, age appropriate rooms to fit their needs.
Depending on your preschool child’s age, they may join children in the infant room, transition room, toddler room, or preschool room at our facilities. No matter which school you choose, our caring staff makes your child’s well-being a priority.
From daytime activities, to music and outdoor fun, you can be sure that your child will have plenty of interactive learning and playtime with children their own age. Our mission is devoted to providing an atmosphere focused on learning at any age and setting up young children to be successful in their education for years to come.schedule a tour
The Montessori Method is an educational method and philosophy that recognizes children’s natural curiosity and desire to learn. The name originates from Dr. Maria Montessori, Italy’s first female medical doctor. Born in 1870, Dr. Montessori studied the behavior and development of children to create a new environment for learning. Dr. Montessori perceived the years between birth and six years as the period when people showed the greatest potential for learning.
For this “sensitive period” in a child’s life Dr. Montessori designed the “prepared environment [where] the child, set free from undue adult intervention, can live its life according to the laws of its development.” In 1907, she founded the first Montessori school in Rome, Casa dei Bambini, or “Children’s House.” Since this time, her methods have been celebrated and continued in the world of early childhood education.
We are passionate about teaching The Montessori method in our classrooms, and we hope our knowledge and passion influences your children to become independent, creatively-minded individuals as they grow with us at our learning centers. We offer competitive tuition rates, outstanding service, and dependable classroom settings that help your children thrive.
