When you enter the door to Children's Montessori Center there is a plaque that reads, "Prepare the Child for the Path, Not the Path for the Child". That philosophy is evident throughout the curriculum and environment at CMC. We believe the strong foundation that all three of our children received at CMC has enhanced their educational and social development. - Shannon Family (Joe, William, & Eliza)

The years our boys spent at the Children's Montessori Center were some of the most encouraging and thoughtful years of their school years thus far. The growth in confidence, love of learning and social interaction they experienced was a direct result of the caring environment created by the teachers and the support of Maria Montessori’s philosophy of the “whole child.”
