Overview

Overview

Welcome to Elm City Montessori School, where we build independent learners and partner with families! 

Elm City Montessori School, a local charter magnet serving PreK3, PreK4 and Kindergarten, is proud to be New Haven’s first public Montessori School. Core to the Montessori approach is a focus on interactive, self-directed learning and hands-on inquiry in thoughtfully-prepared multi-age classrooms that foster independence, creativity, critical-thinking and leadership. Our program’s developmental approach to education integrates math, science, language arts, music, and the outdoors in a nurturing and academically rigorous environment that promotes life-long learning and helps each child realize her full potential.

How to Know Elm City Montessori School is Right for Your Child:

  • Your child likes exploring hands-on materials in a beautiful, structured, student-centered environment
  • Fostering your young child’s decision-making abilities and independence early on is important to you
  • You are excited to be involved in helping build a parent-founded school and its culture from the ground up

Unique Ways Your Child Can Learn and Grow Here:

  • Your child guides their own learning to develop self-initiative
  • Your child gains a diverse and well-rounded worldview through hands-on, holistic exploration across many disciplines
  • Your child develops leadership and teamwork through peer mentoring and cooperation that happens naturally through multi-age classrooms
