About Our School
The dandelion flower is a symbol of growth, hope, and development. Starting out as a yellow bud, this flower transforms into a head of seeds that spreads across the land to take root and produce future growth. Whether you are a teacher, parent, friend or family member of the children of Montessori School of Tupelo, you are a part of this growth. Just like the dandelion, you are spreading the learning experience through the example you lead and motivating the next generation ahead. We are leaders, nurturers, and motivators.
We are a small school of a maximum capacity of 50 students. Students range in ages 8 weeks up to 6 years old.
Our classrooms are:
Infant (8 weeks to 18 months)
Toddler (18 months to 3 years old)
Early Childhood (3-6 years old) *must be toilet trained
"We have had our son here for two and a half years and let me tell you, it was hands down one of the best decisions we’ve made! Leaving your little one with someone during the day is a difficult thing to do but when you leave him in good hands it takes the worry away. This school has adopted the Montessori principles beautifully. They truly know how to nurture children and foster curiosity, structure, academics, independence, empathy, and a love of learning. The teachers truly care about my son. He’s been exposed to different cultures, music, and art. Most importantly he’s been allowed to be a child! The communication from the staff is impeccable. I get videos and pictures as well as communication through the Procare app and our GroupMe. I don’t just hear from them when something needs to improve. I hear about all the sweet and silly things he does all day! Meals and snacks are nutritious wholesome foods which is important to me. We couldn’t ask for a more well rounded, loving, and nurturing environment for our son!"
Take Part as a Parent
We ask that the parents of children enrolled continue their role as their child's primary teachers by entering into a partnership with Montessori School of Tupelo. Parent participation is the key to the development of your child and to the success of the school. We strongly encourage parent participation and support as it is an integral part of the Montessori Method.
