Choosing childcare is one of the most important decisions families make. Finding the right daycare is often challenging. Even though parents are the most important people in their child’s life, the relationship your child has with their preschool will also affect how they feel about themselves and the world around them. Greater Montessori School is the finest Authentic Montessori School providing childcare operating with daycare hours.

Why Choose Greater Montessori?

"Real Education is the freedom to absorb and learn"

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.

“When a child is given a little leeway, he will at once shout, ’I want to do it!’ But in our schools, which have an environment adapted to children’s needs, they say, ‘Help me to do it alone.’”

— Dr. Maria Montessori
