Montessori FAQ

Gloucester is unusual in having a resource usually found in larger urban communities--a Montessori School. The School includes two Children's House classes for ages 3-6, and an elementary class for ages 6-10. The goal of a Montessori education is to allow each child to reach his or her full potential, intellectually and in relationships with others, while developing a sense of self-esteem and responsibility.

We encourage:

  • responsible decision making
  • creative self-expression
  • orderliness and respect of environment
  • cooperation and positive interactions with others
  • independence and self-discipline
  • non-competitive attitudes

The morning session for 3 and 4 year olds is from 8:30 to 11:45. For kindergarten through third grade, the schedule is 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. The School offers an after-school care program for children enrolled in kindergarten and elementary programs.

Gloucester Montessori, located on Route 17 just north of Gloucester Court House, is a non-profit organization led by a board of directors composed primarily of parents.

For enrollment information, or to arrange a visit or find out more, call Ron Flowe, Head of School, at (804) 693-6455.
