Established in 2010, Village Montessori is a non-sectarian private school committed to providing a unique child centered environment using the internationally recognized curriculum of pioneering educator, Dr. Maria Montessori. Located in the heart of Broad Ripple Village, we are able to provide a unique experience for not only our families and students but our community as well. We welcome children age 3-6 years of age. For more enrollment information please visit our "Admissions" page.
Village Montessori School regards education with respect to the whole child, which involves education, socialization, and acculturation. To that end, the School's purpose, mission, core values and code of ethics, acknowledge and appreciate individuality, welcome and benefit from diversity, and celebrate the harmony of this vibrant community.
Our program is unique in that we provide a full time outdoor environment that not only provides a wide variety of gross motor activities but also utilizes the environment to provide fine motor, language, math and nature to educate the child. We truly operate an outdoor "classroom" where children can freely flow indoors and out because both environments have a similar structure and style. We like to say, "There is no such thing as inappropriate weather only inappropriate clothing".
We pride ourselves on our dynamic teaching staff with each teacher bringing their unique abilites and life into the environment. Village Montessori School hosts dedicated and proud educators including an American Montessori Society (AMS) certified Lead Montessorian, four Assistants (one of which is undergoing AMS Montessorian Certification currently), and a Head of School/Director. All staff members are trained in CPR, First Aid, Child Abuse and Neglect Awareness, Universal Precautions and have annual background checks, drug screens, physicals and TB screens performed. Along with those - each professional completes 20+ hours of extended training each year!
"The teacher must realize above all else that their task concerns a revelation of the child's soul. If they do, the steps they take with the child will be of great importance: if they do not, all their work will go for nothing... This work must have a twofold objective: constructing a suitable environment and bringing about a new attitude toward children on the part of adults. It is necessary to create surroundings for the child that answer his needs not only from the point of view of his physical and mental health but also from the point of view of his spiritual life."
-Maria Montessori, "Education and Peace"
