About Us

Clay-Platte Montessori School (CPMS) was founded in 1966 and has been at its current location since 1974. CPMS offers authentic Montessori programs for children from 15months through high school.

The Clay-Platte Montessori School campus is situated on a beautiful 10-acre wooded area. Exploring nature and its inhabitants amidst a meandering creek, open meadows, and wooded trails are favorite activities of the students. Nature is an important component of the Montessori philosophy, and the campus was designed specifically to embrace this need. To stay true to the method and design of the campus, the indoor/outdoor classroom is embraced everyday.

Each of CPMS’s Lead Guides carries a diploma from Association Montessori Internationale (AMI), the organization that Dr. Maria Montessori founded to protect the integrity of the methodology she founded and tested through the scientific method. Each guide writes and publishes between six and eight albums (one for each subject area), observes in experienced Montessori classrooms, student teaches, and passes written and oral exams to earn their diploma. Through this process, they become experts in the development of children and keen observers. Their thorough knowledge of each material within their environment allows them to match student needs with particular lessons that meet those needs.
