General School Mission

Boulder Montessori School is an early childhood program
committed to the concepts and values of Montessori education.
BMS offers a well-rounded curriculum that nurtures
and sustains the developmental needs of the whole child.

This includes aspects of human culture such as enjoyment of
the natural world, science, art, music and opportunities
to experience independence and exploration.

As a community of children, involved parents and
committed professional staff, we pledge to be a diverse community
that strives to live in peace with each other and the earth.

We are dedicated to the principles of consensus,
mutual understanding, courtesy, respect, trust
and support of one another.
