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.

The Benefits of Montessori Education for Your Child

Choosing a Montessori environment for your child has many benefits. Known for individually paced learning and fostering independence, the Montessori Method also encourages empathy, a passion for social justice, and a joy in lifelong learning.

Given the freedom and support to question, to probe deeply, and to make connections, Montessori students become confident, enthusiastic, self-directed learners. They are able to think critically, work collaboratively, and act boldly—a skill set for the 21st century.

  • Each child is valued as a unique individual.

  • Beginning at an early age, Montessori nurtures order, concentration, and independence.

  • Students are part of a close, caring community.

  • Montessori students enjoy freedom within limits.

  • Students are supported in becoming active seekers of knowledge.

  • Self-correction and self-assessment are an integral part of the Montessori classroom approach.

  • Montessori supports social-emotional skills.

A Montessori education develops students who are capable, accountable, knowledgeable people who have the strong sense of self they will need to thrive in the real world.


The Montessori classrooms create an environment appropriate for the child’s different stages of development and to meet their individual needs within each stage. Montessori schools combine ages into approximately three-year ranges (for example, ages 3-6 or 9-12) in a classroom.

"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!"
