At the Day Star Montessori School, children from ages 18-months to 6-years develop a lifelong appreciation for learning.

We strive to create engaging environments that encourage children to explore their curiosity, develop a lifelong love for learning, and practice care and concern for others. Our licensed teachers carry out the Montessori philosophy of promoting responsibility, independence, and confidence through child-driven activities. Children conduct their own projects, and work both independently and collaboratively. Teachers step in only when necessary, because their responsibility is to guide and not overshadow children.

Your Child Will Develop The Fundamental Traits of A Montessori Student:


Your child will learn to take charge of their personal lives through self-directing their learning.

Intrinsic Motivation

Your child will pursue learning for their own enjoyment, not because they expect external rewards. The satisfaction of new knowledge will power them through their schooling.


Your child will build confidence as they explore new topics independently and in small groups.

Acute Sensory Perception

Your child’s senses will be sharpened by the holistic, hands-on nature of a Montessori education. As they learn, they’ll improve the fine motor skills necessary for self-care and writing by hand.

Academic Achievement

Your child moves through the curriculum at their own pace. There’s no rush, so they can thoroughly explore a topic that interests them.

Responsible Citizenship

Classes consist of mixed ages. Older children will help their younger classmates, so your child will learn how to communicate with people of different backgrounds and developmental stages.


Your child will learn self-regulation as they conduct their own experiments. They’ll need the discipline to stay focused and determine when to move on to their next assignment.

Spiritual Awareness

Your child will explore cultural activities and learn to respect the beliefs of others.

It is necessary that the child teach himself, and then the success is great.
- Dr. Maria Montessori PhD
