Growing Our Community - Strengthening Our Roots

Dedicated to the Montessori philosophy and method of education since 1978.

Welcome to University Montessori School! Established in 1978, UMS is a not for profit pre-primary school dedicated to the Montessori philosophy and method of education. We have two complete and individual classrooms: a twenty month to three year old class and a combination 3 to 6 year old preschool, transitional, and kindergarten class.

"I have studied the child. I have taken what the child has given me and expressed it

and that is what is called the Montessori method."
