Plans are in the works to expand our school to include an elementary classroom.
Our plans include 3 phases:
1- Montessori elementary teacher training
2- Expand school to make space for new classroom
3- Open 1st grade classroom
We are currently in the middle of phase 1. Juliet Sloan, the primary guide and school owner will graduate with an Association Montessori Internationale diploma for elementary in 2020.
Phase 2 will occur over the summer of 2021 or 2022, depending on when we can fund the project. We plan to double the width of the school towards Main Street. We are currently fundraising for this and for the purchase of elementary classroom materials.
We will begin phase 3 in the fall of 2023 (assuming everything goes according to plan). That means that 3-year-old preschool children enrolling for next fall will be the first class to have the option of staying for first grade. As that group ages up, the classroom will expand. The first year the elementary class will only include first graders. The next year will be first and second. The next year will be first, second and third, and so on.
This has been a long term goal that is finally coming together. We are excited about to be heading down this path, and look forward to collaboration and support from the community.
The Monmouth Montessori School has earned a 5 Star Rating with the Quality Rating and Improvement System (QRIS). QRIS is a systemic approach to assess, improve, and communicate the level of quality in early and school-age care and education programs. A 5 Star Rating is the highest a program can earn.
