CMS students are placed in age-appropriate and stimulating environments that encourage self-growth, independence and development across all areas. The level of care and safety precautions in place is second to none and leaves us feeling secure every day we drop-off our son at school.”

-Sharon E

“The child care staff at CMS provided our family peace of mind while allowing our child to learn and grow in the most beautiful setting possible.

“There is no other program in the area that comes close to competing with the Infant Program at Canton Montessori.  Even the youngest of infants are placed in stimulating work areas.  By the end of their time in this environment, my children were clearing their plates, pouring water and holding a pencil correctly.  AMAZING!!”

-Robin Z.

Canton Montessori is an amazing facility filled with caring educators who have a passion for helping our children develop as independent learners.”
