Affiliate Schools

Michigan Montessori Society Affiliated schools offer a quality Montessori education for their students.

Montessori Affiliate Schools

These schools are held to the highest standards and offer classes that meet five days a week. To become an affiliate, they must meet the following criteria:

The Montessori Environment

The classroom is a prepared environment with a full complement of Montessori materials. The uninterrupted work period is of sufficient length to provide opportunities for the children to immerse themselves in work they have chosen freely with three hours being the ideal. Instruction primarily takes place in small groups or individually.

The Montessori Guide

The lead teacher in each classroom has a credential from a MACTE accredited teacher ed program and participates in ongoing professional development. The Montessori assistants provide support and encouragement allowing the children to develop their “cycle of activity.”

The Montessori Community

The class welcomes children that create a multi-aged community, a three-year age span being the ideal. Teachers are responsible for maintaining evidence of the children’s progress through observation and detailed record keeping.

The children are immersed in the environment five days a week to provide them with the opportunity to gently acquire understanding of all the materials and lessons the Montessori classroom has to offer. Attending school five days provides the best opportunity for the child to develop both academically and socially, becoming an integral part of the community.

Montessori Affiliate Schools are held to the highest standards and offer a full five-day program.
