Welcome to Arlington Montessori
School, celebrating years of educational excellence
with family, community, and the world at large.
Arlington Montessori School is a vibrant community of
educators and families, agreeing with Dr. Maria
Montessori that each generation of children has the
opportunity to remake the world it inherits.
Introduction to Arlington Montessori School
education begins with a carefully prepared, classroom
environment, focused on the developmental needs and
abilities of each age group, and providing a variety of
manipulative materials and other invitations for children
to explore math, science, language, arts and cultural
studies, and physical engagement with the world. Our
classrooms nurture our childrens innate love of
learning, invite inquiry and exploration, and provide
abundant opportunities to engage in meaningful activity.
Because the materials can be used in multiple ways,
children are inspired to move progressively from the
concrete to the abstract as their abilities unfold.
Although all AMS programs are carefully constructed based
on the childs developmental stages.
Nurturing a Love of Learning
At the Early Childhood level (ages 3-6) our educational program is based on the premise that young children flourish with gentle guidance and the freedom to work at their own pace. Our rich classroom environments stimulate independent learning activities and our curriculum incorporates pre-reading and math skill development, science activities, geography and cultural studies, sensory exercises and art . Children make friends easily and learn how to share and play cooperatively in a safe and secure setting.
