As you step inside a Norbeck Montessori classroom you will immediately notice and feel the fundamental teachings of Dr. Maria Montessori. A sense of order and purpose focusing on a love of learning, a strong work ethic, creativity, respect, and compassion for others.
Our multi-aged classrooms are arranged by the teachers to encourage independence, freedom within limits and harmony. We regard our teachers as environmental engineers, whereby they observe each child and adjust the classroom environment to suite their individual needs throughout the school year.
Transitional Two’s Toddler Program
(ages 24-36 months)
The joy a two-year-old brings to your day is like nothing else. Their abundant curiosity, their never-ending supply of energy and their love for learning new things is apparent in everything they do and say. At Norbeck Montessori’s Transitional Two’s Toddler Program, we embrace those traits and nurture the child’s innate personality.

Preschool / Primary Montessori Program
(ages 3-5 years old)
Our multi-age Primary Classrooms inspire curiosity, discovery and development. Children are drawn to the beautifully crafted Montessori materials on the shelves, which invites each child to take a hands-on approach to learning. Our Montessori materials provide learning pathways that begin with concrete concepts and move to more abstract ways of thinking. Lessons become increasingly more complex, ensuring that the level of challenge continues to meet the child’s needs. Click here to learn more about our Montessori Program.
(must be 5 years old by September 1st)

Extra-curricular activities are optional activities offered at various times throughout the school year at Norbeck Montessori. Our Extra-curricular activities are meant to enhance the cognitive, physical and social development. Some of our kid and parent approved activities include physical activities, while others actively engage their brainpower! The activities are designed to provide additional opportunities for growth and development without having to leave the school grounds. By offering and encouraging a deeper exploration of the world, your child will increase their engagement and develop their own personal areas of interest.
