Founded in 1976 by Judith Flynn and Jean Nugent, the Montessori Children’s Center is a preschool serving children ages 2 – 6. The school has two classrooms, with children of mixed ages in each.
MCC offers both a full day and half day program, as well as childcare before and after school. The full day program hours are 8:30 am – 3:00 pm. The half day program goes from 8:30 am – 12:30, and is limited to children under 3. Children are required to attend the school five days a week.
We provide a full range of Montessori materials and activities in both classrooms. During the day, children are guided in their use of the Montessori teaching materials by the teachers and staff. A typical day also includes play time outside, group activities, and a morning and afternoon snacks. The school also offers optional classes in Music and Sign Language.
The MCC holds an open house each spring and fall. Visiting the school and observing the classrooms is also encouraged. To learn more, go here.
