The Rainbow Montessori School was founded in 1982 as a Children’s House for children aged three to six. Utilizing traditional classroom techniques along with Montessori-based materials and methodology, The Rainbow Montessori School provides a warm, supportive environment where children can feel secure and appreciated. This happy place allows them to freely develop individual strengths and abilities.
We are a small Montessori school, accepting no more than 23 children each year, conducting morning and afternoon sessions. With a minimum of two adults in the classroom at all times, we provide a teacher-student ratio of 1:7, smaller than one would find in many Montessori schools. Children are generally enrolled for two to three years. This extended participation engenders individualized on-going observation of each child, promoting positive interactions and, quite often, one-on-one instruction. We value the personal, respectful and dynamic relationship we establish with each child and believe that this is in fact the cornerstone of our educational process.
