Our School



Montessori education is known for following the child, respecting his own pace of development while fostering his interests, and promoting independence, both within the structure of the classroom and out in the wider world. Cattoira Montessori School is a place which response to each child as an individual. We are a vibrant, international community of learners, where children and adults can learn from each other, by teaching and by doing. We strive to create a respectful, peaceful environment where students can grow and be who they are. At CMS we believe that each person – child, parent, and staff – brings something unique and valuable to our community. We invite you to visit our school and spend some time in our classrooms, to see how children interact with one another and with the adults who are their guides and teachers. See how responsibility and independence are fostered; how the child-appropriate environment makes it possible for children to do what they are capable of, and how adults follow the child’s lead to meet his developmental needs.

Come meet our faculty and learn more about our programs for Toddlers through Grade 6. Join us for a tour and see why children love being here. We look forward to meeting you!

From Our Director

As parents, we know that making sure your child receives the best education is paramount to you as you search for a school. When it comes to education, there are many different methods and approaches in use today.

However, it is my belief that the more research you do, will always lead you to the same conclusion, that the Montessori Method is the premier method to unlock the potential in a child. Our school is founded on the basic principles of education used and developed by Maria Montessori.

By adhering to even the simplest of techniques, we strive to ensure that the manner and approach used with each and every child is given in a way that maximizes their ability to learn, explore and discover, thus fulfilling Maria Montessori’s original belief that providing this type of learning and environment produces the very best in every child. I encourage you to visit our school and let us share with you how your child can begin down the road to a rewarding education where the benefits last a lifetime.
