Welcome to The Baltimore Montessori
At The Baltimore Montessori, our mission is to ensure the total development of each child and we stay true to the concepts of traditional Montessori education as outlined by Dr. Maria Montessori. Founded in 2006, we currently have two programs in Downtown Baltimore that provide excellent education and care for children 18 months – 6 years. The school has a proven track record of children with high academic standards. We are the first private Montessori school in Baltimore City to be certified by both the Maryland State Department of Education and the Montessori Schools of Maryland. Our program allows for:
- Practical life, sensorial development, language, math and culture
- Providing avenues for creative expression
- Fostering self-esteem
- Cognitive development and problem-solving skills
- Music and movement (including yoga)
- Enhancing fine motor and gross motor skills
- Developing social skills
Faculty at The Baltimore Montessori
Our faculty is comprised of Montessori Directresses and Teacher Assistants. Because we believe in providing quality education in a stimulating and nurturing environment for our children, we ensure that all our staff are qualified to perform their designated duties as per the Montessori method of education. Additionally, the staff is subjected to State and Federal Criminal Background checks as well as a physical examination to ensure that they are safe and healthy enough to work with our children. The common underlying factor among our staff is their genuine love for children and their teamwork approach in helping them to reach their potential.
Locust Point Location
The Baltimore Montessori - Locust Point is situated in a historical school building that was established in the 1930’s. This location is ideal not only because of its close proximity to the worksites of most of our parents but also because of the architecture of the building. The high tin ceilings, wood floors, long hallways, large size classrooms and childsize lockers all contribute to the welcoming ambience of this program. The famous downtown Baltimore Inner Harbor is only 5 minutes away from this center. It is also 2 minutes away from I-95, 10 minutes to I-83 and a few minutes away from the University of Maryland Medical Center.
The Baltimore Montessori-Canton is a beautiful church building built in 1890, just off of O’Donnell Square and is surrounded by great scenery and restaurants and is half a block from the historic Enoch Pratt Library. This location has a beautiful green outdoor area as well as an inviting indoor play space for the children. Equipped with large airy classrooms, high ceilings, wood floors, stained glass windows and over sized barn doors it is a mixture of old world charm and modern accents. This location is also 2 minutes away from I-95, 10 minutes to I-83 and a few minutes away from the The Johns Hopkins Medical Center. Our Canton location is in a central spot that is easily accessible.
