MDS’s faculty is comprised of talented, well-trained teachers who are committed to fostering each child's growth, curiosity, and desire to learn. Our teachers are dedicated to nurturing children in every aspect of their development--from self-care to academic readiness for Kindergarten.
Every class has three teachers, at least one of whom has received advanced Montessori teacher training and/or certification. In addition, a team of support teachers provide consistently low teacher-to-student ratios in every classroom. At all times, there is one teacher for every four students in our toddler classrooms, and one teacher for every five students in our mixed-age classrooms.
Our enrichment teachers come from all walks of life, and bring with them their passion for their chosen art. They give our students the opportunity to participate in activities that complement the Montessori curriculum, including music, yoga, Spanish, soccer, and organic gardening.
Montessori Day School is committed to its family of teachers, providing ongoing professional development, and an educational assistance program that provides tuition support for teachers enrolling in Montessori and Early Childhood Development programs. As a result, we boast many teachers who have been with us for more than a decade.
