Lead now, Lead Later

"Education should no longer be mostly imparting of knowledge, but must take a new path, seeking the release of human potentialities." -Maria Montessori

Established in the spring of 1968, Canton Montessori School (CMS) has been delivering premier Montessori education in the Canton Ohio Area for over five decades.

It is my privilege to lead such an example of excellence in our community. As each day unfolds, I look forward to the multitude of friends who arrive at school filled with a developed spirit of inquiry and exhibiting a true love of learning. Our environments are led by Directresses with superior credentials and varied experiences. They meet each day with a focused commitment on cultivating the curiosity of each of their students within the beautiful construct of the Montessori Method and the ethos, "Follow the Child".

We invite you to experience all that CMS has to offer. As you peruse these pages and ingest the information contained therein, please don't hesitate to contact me directly at:

Thank you for visiting our website. We look forward to working with you!                                                                 Matthew McCaffrey, Head of School
