Welcome to Cranbrook Montessori School
Cranbrook Montessori School provides an educational program that encourages the development of the whole child, learning at his/her own pace with respect for individual diversity and dignity. We provide an environment which inspires an active pursuit of lifelong learning. At Cranbrook Montessori School, we believe that each person – child, parent, and staff – brings something unique and valuable to our community.
We encourage you to visit our school and spend some time in our classroom. You are welcome to take the opportunity to see how responsibility and independence are fostered, how the prepared environment makes it possible for children to do what they are capable of, and how our teachers follow the child’s lead to meet their developmental needs.
