Palisades Montessori is a Montessori preschool in the Palisades community of Washington, DC. Our sunny Primary classroom is located at 2828 Hurst Terrace NW, across the street from Key Elementary School.
Palisades Montessori is a warm, loving community for 2-1/2 to 5 year-old students. Montessori education is characterized by an emphasis on independence and a “discovery” model for learning. As Maria Montessori so eloquently said, “Our care of the child should be governed, not by the desire to make him learn things, but by the endeavor always to keep burning within him that light which is called intelligence.” Montessori education also prioritizes the outdoor classroom, and our students spend ample time outdoors.
Palisades Montessori’s students interact with each other in mixed age groups in the school’s classroom and natural play yard. At ages 2-1/2 to 5, children are beginning to explore their first social relationships with each other. A mixed-age group gives young children ample opportunities to communicate, interact and teach each other.
At this age, children are having their first independent experiences outside of their homes. Palisades Montessori is a fully-licensed and equipped facility that looks and feels like “school”, but is based in facility that is inside a private home. This gives very young children extra comfort, as they build confidence in a new setting for the first time.
Available Spots: Palisades Montessori currently has a two spots open in the two-morning program (Mondays and Tuesdays, 9:00AM-12:00PM). Our three- and five-morning programs are full for the 2015-2016 school year.
