Welcome to Cattoira Montessori School
Cattoira Montessori School encourages independent, self-directed learning for life in a child-centered, international community valuing peace, respect for others and pride in individual difference.
Cattoira Montessori School was founded in June 2002 to foster a love of learning and to educate children to be caring, socially responsible citizens of their community and world. The educational and supplemental care programs at CMS involve children from eighteen months through twelve years of age in three different programs: Toddler, Primary, and Elementary. CMS seeks to educate the whole child, applying the Montessori philosophy, in a family-oriented environment.
The philosophy is based on the principles of Dr. Maria Montessori (1870-1952) whose holistic vision of education focuses on the cognitive, social, emotional and physical needs of the child. For Dr. Montessori, and for CMS, education is preparation for life.
