Welcome to Litchfield Montessori School!
Our school is tucked in a lovely wooded environ adjacent to Northfield Pond. The setting calls our children, from toddler to twelve, into nature for exploration in every season.
For over forty years LMS has nurtured children to grow into students with a love for learning and deep respect for life. Our school is knit together with experienced faculty and involved parents creating an engaging and active community dedicated to Montessori principles. We offer parent education to support what happens daily at school.
Our children are the future and we are dedicated to prepare them to be successful drawing on their unique qualities and strengths. The foundation of a Montessori education is like no other. Students gain not only a good sense of self but also a sense of responsibility and the desire to give back by doing something meaningful for others.
Visitors often ask us, “What happens after Montessori?” The answer is simple. We consider the whole child in the process of their education and therefore, with this good foundation, when they leave at the end of sixth grade they are confident and enthusiastic students. They transition exceptionally well.
Schedule a visit and sit in a classroom to observe the children at work constructing themselves. We would love to have you!
