The Montessori School of Cambridge, a not-for-profit charitable organization since 1972, has focused on providing the very best quality of care for the child by putting dollars back into the Children’s House learning environments.

A not-for-profit charitable organization since 1972

Not all Montessori schools are not-for-profit. A visit to our school and a tour of our classrooms is living proof that money is invested where it counts – quality learning materials, resources and equipment for the children. The guides and volunteer parent board work to develop programs with the best interests of the child in mind. Our not-for-profit school offers many opportunities to get involved. So, why not…share your talents, lend a hand, build your skills and enjoy new friendships. Dr. Maria Montessori observed, “It is interesting to see how little by little, these children become aware of forming a community which behaves as such…once they have reached this level, the children put the group first and try to succeed for its benefit.”

Our events are an opportunity to have fun while getting to know staff and other families in our school community. Why not share your talents in planning and organising or helping out on the day of events like our annual Skating Party or Year End Picnic?
