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.

Independent

"No one can be free unless [they are] independent: therefore, the first, active manifestations of the child's individual liberty must be so guided that through this activity [they] may arrive at independence." -Maria Montessori

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

Diaper Drive for NC Diaper Bank

MSD's Community Connection Committee is coordinating a Diaper Drive for NC Diaper Bank. They accept donations of new and opened packages of diapers. The most urgent needs are for size 4 & 5 diapers, size 4T/5T pullups, and baby wipes. From March 8th-16th, families can drop off donations in collection boxes at the arrival gate (for Early Childhood and Elementary), outside the Toddler building, or outside the office. We need volunteers on March 16th to pick up the donations from MSD and deliver to the NC Diaper Bank. Please let Natalie know if you are able to help with this by emailing her at natalie@msdurham.org.
