Montessori Children’s School offers Montessori classrooms for children ages 1 – 14 in Jacksonville, NC and the surrounding area.

The Montessori Children’s School believes that all children:

Parents have a deep desire to find the best for their child, the perfect environment in which they can develop to their full potential and become a happy, confident, and self-motivated adult. Montessori Children’s School has created this environment, which is strengthened by the school’s deep conviction that a Montessori education allows them to build positive attitudes towards learning and towards life. It is the mission of Montessori Children’s School to prepare happy, competent, self-motivated, and responsible leaders.


Students from our Elementary and Middle School programs celebrated the International Day of Peace by participating in singing, Light a Candle For Peace, on September 21, 2016. Our students joined other Montessori schools from 65 different countries in singing at their country’s designated time. It has been reported that 150,000 individuals participated. Take two minutes to hear our MCS students perform this beautiful song composed by Shelley Murley, a musician and Montessori teacher.
