Our Montessori Program is one of only six in Ohio and the only one in Northeast Ohio to earn the American Montessori Society accreditation.
Gilmour’s Montessori Program will open a new class for students ages 18 months to 36 months at the start of the new school year in August 2013 called Early Beginnings. There will now be three Montessori classes at Gilmour’s Lower School. For any additional questions or information about either the new Early Beginnings class or the existing Montessori classes, please contact Director of Lower School Admissions Katie Saunier at (440) 473-8165 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Gilmour Academy Montessori Program reflects the philosophy and teaching methods first established by Dr. Maria Montessori throughout Europe at the beginning of the 20th century. The Montessori Method is a proven educational theory. A certified Montessori teacher guides the child through Kindergarten in emotional, social, cognitive and physical growth. The Montessori materials are designed to bring forth coordination, concentration, order and independence within the child.
