Parker Montessori Educational Institute (PMEI), features Montessori classrooms serving toddlers through kindergarten. PMEI follows the philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori and provides creative and challenging classrooms that foster experiential learning and critical thinking. We provide strong “basic” education integrated with science, geography, cultural studies and the arts. In addition, our special course offerings compliment our Montessori curriculum.

General School Mission

PMEI follows the philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori. We believe, as she did, that within each child is the seed of unlimited potential which will guide the child into adulthood. We emphasize individualized education as opposed to strict curricular education while utilizing many types of curricula.

Each child is educated at his or her own rate of development. Our focus is to continually stimulate the child through an enriched environment with activities, materials, and extensions that promote experimentation at every developmental level. In essence, we offer the world on a silver platter knowing that the innate curiosity of children will promote independence, exploration, experimentation and creativity.

These goals of nurturing curiosity and independence are balanced with our goals of developing responsibility and self-discipline. Defined limits and expectations are set through curriculum standards as well as through student coded of conduct and discipline. Each child is offered opportunities to grow within the context of respect for themselves, the environment and the people with which he/she shares the world. These concepts are the core of Dr. Montessori's philosophy of education.
