About Our School

Claire’s Montessori was established in August of 1994 to fill a need for high quality Preschool education. Within a period of 25 years, Claire’s Montessori has grown into a quality Private School where the needs of children as young as infants through 6th grade are educated in a cutting-edge social, emotional and academic curriculum.

We successfully serve the various age levels of our students because of our commitment and dedication to our families, students, faculty and staff. Every member of our community is part of the Claire’s family and as such the highest care is given to everyone’s needs.

At our school, we have established a positive school culture built on strong, rigorous, and child–centered social, emotional and academic programs. Our mission is to create a climate that maximizes a student’s ability to be flexible, adaptable, analytical, persistent and to become a self-sufficient learner who fully understands working as part of a team. Our students are high functioning in academics but also develop healthy physical, social, and emotional skills in our safe and caring environment.

The faculty, staff, and administration are committed to nurturing your child’s educational experiences, promoted through a diverse 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.

We focus on being a family – oriented community and provide a warm, safe, and child – centered environment where students enjoy and excel at learning. We look forward to meeting your family’s needs in the education of your child and thank you for your interest in Claire’s Montessori.
