Prepared
Learn how a Montessori education can prepare your child for life.

"We do not say that we want to prepare a school for the children, we wish to prepare an environment for life, where the child can develop a life." -Maria Montessori

Modern neuroscience confirms that classic Montessori methods promote problem solving, independent thinking, creativity, and collaboration.

Why Montessori? Prepare your child.

Transformed
Free the child's potential, and you will transform him into the world.

"Free the child's potential, and you will transform [them] into the world." -Maria Montessori

This transformation begins in our prepared environments that foster the
development of order, concentration, coordination, and independence in a gentle atmosphere of respect, care, grace, and courtesy.

At Montessori School of Durham, the child is in the process of becoming.
