Common Questions

How many classrooms are there?

One Toddler Community for ages 16 months - 33 months

Three Primary Classrooms for ages 33 months - Kindergarten

Is there an advantage to mixed-age classrooms?

The older students at JMS serve as both role models and tutors for the younger students. This environment gives older children confidence in their own abilities and self-esteem to be leaders of the classroom. This also gives younger children a clear vision of what is expected of them.

Is there a lunch service?

Families are asked to bring their own peanut-free lunch.

We feel so lucky to find this positive and peaceful place for our children. The staff here truly believe in the Montessori philosophy and have always demonstrated respect, care, grace and courtesy to children, parents and each other. In the past year, we have been impressed by the respectful language my son uses, how easily he forgives, how much confidence he has gained, and the love of nature he has developed. Our family feels very proud to be a part of the JMS community.
