Claire's Montessori is a Montessori school educating children from preschool through elementary level 6th grade education.

Claire's Montessori was established in August of 1994 to fill a need for high quality Early Childhood education. Within a period of 25 years, Claire's Montessori has grown into a high-quality Early Childhood and Elementary School, where the needs of children from Infants through Elementary are served.

At our school, we have established a positive culture built on strong, rigorous, and child-centered academic programs. Our mission is to create a climate that maximizes self-sufficient learning for students while developing healthy physical, social, and emotional skills in a safe and caring environment. Our Montessori practice encourages self-directed learning in every aspect of the child’s life from practical skills to complex principles of math and science. As your Head of School, my goal is to build on the school’s many successes in order to fully realize this mission in service to the children we serve.
The faculty, staff, and our administration team are committed to nurturing your child’s educational experiences, promoted through a diverse integrated spiral curriculum, a dedicated and knowledgeable faculty, and a vibrant school-community partnership. Effective communication, cooperation, and collaboration between home and school are essential to build a strong foundation for a successful school community. We encourage and invite parents and community involvement in an effort to build upon the educational experiences for each of the students that attend Claire’s Montessori. Your children are the most important assets in our school community, and we take this commitment very seriously.

Claire’s Montessori admits students of any race, color, national, or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.
