Montessori Classrooms and Schools

If you’re new to Montessori, you probably have questions galore.

Why are children grouped in multi-age classes? Why are they allowed to walk around the classroom so much? How can students keep up if they’re not all learning the same thing at the same time?

Yes, Montessori schools may be different from schools with which you are already familiar. The uninterrupted work time, the emphasis on learning through experience and exploration—these are among the unique hallmarks of a Montessori education, an approach that inspires children to become self-motivated, lifelong learners.

Before and After School Care

Every morning before school starts, students that attend DTM's before care program are greeted by Ms. Carroll's smiling face. FCS offers this service before and after school for parents that have signed up their child. If you are interested i this service please contact Ms. Michele for further information.

Expansion News

Kindergarten Round Up was held last week. This event helped enroll many children in our program. Both K-2 classrooms have enough students to open in 2017-18.


The Montessori preschool interest has been great as well. Families have been expressing their need for their infants through four year olds to have a Montessori experience. We are currently working on the first four year old room. We continue to encourage interested families with children four and under to turn in an interest form found on the flintmontessori.org site this allows us to know the need in Flint for a Montessori program for all ages of children.
