Cottage Montessori:

A Home-Based Montessori Preschool Program


Cottage Montessori is a home-based five-morning early childhood educational program admitting children between the ages 2-1/2 to 4-1/2 in September of the school year.  We are located in ARLINGTON, MA

If you would like to get information for the 2018-19 school year, submit your contact information and we will send you enrollment details.  We are setting up visits and accepting applications during the months of January and February for fall acceptance, and look forward to meeting you soon. 


It's morning.  Your child wakes up full of energy and enthusiasm, eager to embrace the world and everything in it.  Each day there is delight in exploring and celebration of new accomplishments.  As a parent, you want your child's natural curiosity and awe of discovery to be encouraged, just as you do at home.  

You want a rich and varied environment, where your child can learn academic and life lessons, make first friends, and have a wonderful time.  At Cottage Montessori, this is our joy and our commitment to you.

When your child joins our school community, you can feel confident that he or she is appreciated as an individual and respected as a natural explorer.  You will also know that you have partners who are committed to nurturing your child's love of learning.
