Welcome to Greater Montessori School (GMS)

Columbia, MD

Give your child an extraordinary start with us.

We at GMS teach with passion and emotions. We educate using a combination of Montessori and Reggio Emilia’s approach of teaching. We trust that each child is “A Universe of ideas” and as educators we walk with them in their journey felicitating them with independence; with which they can live their dreams. We assist each and every child to reach the next level by creating individual lesson plans in co-ordinance with common core state standards. At GMS we consider it to be as our moral responsibility to be the role models for our students.

Greater Montessori School is lifelong professional learning community.

Why Montessori

Montessori is a form of education that respects the child and his/her desire to learn. A Montessori teacher respects the child and engages him as a partner in learning. Students are encouraged to explore and discover for themselves. Children with Montessori background and bases are always seen thriving as they grow.

Why Reggio Emilia

The Reggio Emilia approach is an educational philosophy focused on pre-primary and primary education. It was developed in the villages around Reggio Emilia in Italy. It is an innovative and inspiring approach to early childhood education which values the child as strong, capable and resilient; rich with wonder and knowledge. Every child brings with them deep curiosity and potential and this innate curiosity drives their interest to understand their world and their place within it.
