Montessori Knows

Montessori is an individualized approach to education that helps each child reach full potential in all areas of life. Our schools believe in an authentic, student-centered approach that encourages creativity and curiosity, and leads children to ask questions, explore, investigate and think for themselves.


Why Montessori?

Montessori offers countless benefits to your child’s development, but here are a few that are at the foundation of our approach.


Child-Centered Learning

Montessori students enjoy a classroom and curriculum designed around their specific needs and abilities that allow them to explore and learn at their own pace.

Inspires Creativity

Creativity in the classroom is encouraged.  Children work at tasks for the joy of the work, which allows them to focus more on process than result.

Teaches Self-Discipline

While Montessori allows children to choose the activities they want to work on each day, and how long they work at a specific task, there are specific “ground rules” that are consistently enforced by the teacher and other students.


Our Montessori programs are renowned for growing generations of leaders. But you don’t have to take our word for it; please enjoy some of the praises of our Montessori students.

I am grateful for knowing about the Montessori program and glad that my son has been able to experience this sort of preschool and care.

Both [of my daughters] are self-starters, innovative, passionate and have a culuture of goodness for people. I attribute a lot of that to Dearborn Heights Montessori Center. They advanced at their own pace and then in many aspects developed more than just academically.

The structure allows for creative thinking and critical thinking. I visit a lot of schools and your students are respectful, listen well, and ask great questions.
