About Montessori

History

Woodbury Montessori School was established in 1968 in a private home by a group of concerned parents who wanted a quality preschool education for their children.  As our school began to grow, we moved to various locations within the Woodbury community.  In 1995 we moved to our current location in St. Paul, and while we are no longer located in Woodbury, we still retain our original name of Woodbury Montessori School.

Woodbury Montessori School is dedicated to the practice of the Montessori philosophy which is based on the premise of cultivating the child’s natural desire to learn.  We have designed and equipped our school to support our primary focus of guiding the children in all of their developmental needs.  Dr. Maria Montessori believed that the most important period of life was the period from birth to age six when the child’s intelligence itself was being created.  We share this belief and have created an environment that is most conducive to allowing your child to discover his or her very first learning experiences in the most natural and harmonious way in the care of loving and nurturing child care professionals.
