Discovery Montessori offers full-day and half-day preschool programs, a full-day kindergarten program, and early elementary programs (grades 1-3). In keeping with Montessori philosophy, our classrooms are grouped into Primary (ages 3-6) and Early Elementary (ages 6-9). All our programs are five days a week.
We have 3 Primary classrooms at East Mountain. At our Providence location, we have one Primary classroom and one Early Elementary classroom.
Each classroom is led by a PA-certified teacher and an assistant teacher. One staff member of each classroom is Montessori-certified or experienced. As a licensed school, Discovery Montessori operates throughout the school year, from September through June.
