  • Why Montessori?
  • Prospective Families

Corvallis Montessori School’s Young Children's Community - The Toddler House - will serve children who are comfortably walking (approximately age 15 months) to 3 yrs, in a small and intimate group of 8-12 children and 3-4 trained staff persons.

The toddler’s most important work - and the emphasis in the Toddler House - is the acquisition of language, along with the development and refinement of gross motor coordination. The Toddler House provides a nurturing environment for this growth to take place.

A "toddler" is a child in transition – a child with particular needs and abilities, which can best be aided through the Montessori toddler environment.

The Primary classrooms are for children from 3 to 6 years. In a mixed-age environment, children spend three years in the same classroom getting to know each other and their teachers. There are 25 children per class. One Montessori teacher and one assistant guide aid the children in a rich array of activities.

Children must be completely potty-trained. The class is 5 mornings per week. Prospective parents may choose to enroll their child in our Half-Day Primary Program (8:30am - 11:30pm) or Full-Day Primary Program (8:30am - 3:00pm).

Extended care program for early mornings and after-school is offered on a space-available basis.

The elementary program is for students from 6 to 12 years old. The elementary program builds upon the academic and social foundation provided in the primary program. Children's imaginative sparks develop as they are guided to deeper and broader explorations of the universe.

Each child follows a dynamic individualized curriculum which incorporates mathematics, physical sciences, geography & cultural studies, music, art, language, theatre & drama, physical education, spanish, and other fields of study.

This is the most important question a parent can ask. After all, there are many private/independent schools to choose from; what makes Montessori the right choice?

Early in the 20th century, decades before early childhood development was a course of study in our colleges and universities, the Italian educator and physician, Dr. Maria Montessori, established her teaching method. Dr. Montessori's revolutionary discoveries caught the attention of educators around the world. One observation became a cornerstone of her method: that meaningful work is essential to a child's development. The Montessori curriculum encompasses that development from birth through adolescence.
