Montessori has been an enriching place for our daughter to attend school. She has a supportive peer environment, nurturing teachers, and gets up every morning wanting to go to school.
For 60 years, Montessori School of CU has been a home away from home for our students, faculty and families. We are a community committed to encouraging life-long learners, respecting independence, and positively impacting the world—one child at a time. From 18 months to 8th grade, we have prepared spaces for your children to explore!
I love that we have the freedom to move around without sitting in desks and we can learn at our own pace.
When I was younger, I liked being able to learn from those in the upper elementary. I wanted to be just like them. And now, I am one of them! I want the lower elementary kids to be just as inspired as I was. I want them to learn from their mistakes, just like I did. I want them to thrive. I want them to feel the need to learn. That is what the Montessori School of CU is all about.
Montessori of CU is not just a school. It is a place of exploration, life skills learning, and freedom to move. Freedom to grow. One of my four kids has had a Montessori- exclusive learning, from age 3 until going into 6th grade. I observe a different love for learning in her. Her love of learning doesn’t stop when she comes home from school. It stays with her. It is not just about the way she understands the world, it shows up in the way she communicates- the way she conflict resolves. The only thing that MSCU could do better is expand through high school! Montessori cherishes books, actual books, hands-on learning and exploration, going outside to learn, freedom to think and move. No staying in chairs all day long. If they would take adults, I think I would sign myself up! The first time I toured a Montessori school, I remember thinking it felt more like a spa than a preschool. It was so peaceful, kids were in a flow, exploring, digging, planting, just completely in it.
