At My First Montessori School (MFMS), our Montessori approach to the education of a child enables our children the freedom to explore and learn, mostly through self-direction – a method that provides the child an opportunity to grow intellectually, physically, emotionally and cognitively.
During these unprecedented times, we have created an online program that aligns with our philosophy, mission, and approach. MFMS Online is teacher-led and family-supported, while instilling the guiding Montessori principles that are rooted in our academic program. Our goal is to preserve the continuity of education while re-establishing structure in your child’s daily life.
The Virtual Elementary program at My First Montessori School is focused on helping guide students’ self-discovery during this sensitive stage of development. We maintain a 5:1 student to teacher ratio, while each Virtual Elementary classroom has Registered Early Childhood Educators and/or Montessori trained teachers.
