Mission Statement

In accordance with the philosophy and pedagogical methods of Maria Montessori, the MCDS community makes it their goal to provide quality, child-centered, individualized education for children ages 12 months through 13 years. We all work together to develop responsible, critical-thinking, confident, powerful, and caring members of society. Through the manipulation of hands-on materials, students develop independence, confidence, self-direction, self-discipline, a positive attitude toward school and a life-long love of learning. Children enjoy freedom of movement and choice within a well-planned, low pressure, child-paced, prepared environment. This environment, designed with clear and carefully defined limits, meets the needs of a multi-aged, heterogeneous grouping of students. Founded in 1968, MCDS is supported by a parent and community board and is a long-standing part of the community.
