General School Mission

"Our schools aspire to help create a world in which all people are valued for their humanity. We seek contribution to a world population where all cultures are appreciated and understood. At Small World Montessori, the children are guided toward various areas of learning: Language, Math, Science, Geography, Sensorial, Art and Practical Living. Creativity and independence are encouraged in a prepared environment. Musikgarten and a second language are offered as part of our curriculum. The children benefit from a small group setting and excellent student/teacher ratios. School sessions vary depending on the class you choose. Please refer to your enrollment form for class times and days.

Small World Montessori is in its eleventh year of operation. It is an internship school for Montessori Institute of America. Small World Montessori currently maintains memberships in PNMA (Pacific Northwest Montessori Association) and NAMTA (North America Montessori Teachers Association).
