Needham Montessori School


Needham Montessori School continues a rich tradition of providing a higher standard for early childhood education through the Montessori Method. We are an American Montessori Society (AMS) Full Member School for children from 15 months to 6 years. Our school promotes peace, independence, responsibility, individualized & group learning, respect for others and appreciation of diversity. We maintain the educational philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori and the guidelines of The Department of Early Education and Care (EEC). Our curriculum includes Everyday Living, Sensorial, Language, Math, Geography, Science and Art. For a more in-depth overview, visit the “Curriculum” section. Most importantly, we partner with parents and caregivers to support the development of the whole child.

We’re excited to offer a summer camp that incorporates the Montessori principles through art, science, games, outdoor play, nature exploration, water fun and sports with an emphasis on learning new skills and building independence. Each week has a different theme: there’s something for everyone. Ages 15 months to 6 years old. It’s a great opportunity for new students to transition into the Montessori program. Flexible schedules are available.


Safety is a top priority at Needham Montessori School. The school has 24-hour surveillance. Teachers and anyone working with children undergo extensive background and CORI checks. The staff perform CPR/First Aid training annually. Staff use a keyless card to access the building. Doors are only opened from the inside. Vendors are only allowed in the building by appointment. The town fire department surpervises fire drills through out the school year. The school’s exits, smoke/carbon monoxide detectors, fire extinguishers and sprinklers are inspected annually. We are a NUT-FREE school.
