About Mequon Montessori School

Mequon Montessori School is an independent school serving about 65 children ages 20 months to 6 years of age in Mequon, Wisconsin. We have been empowering children since 1993, following the child-centered, peace-based education philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori. The school's Administrator, Carol Gehl, has been involved in Montessori education for thirty plus years.

Mequon Montessori School is a vibrant community for children from preschool through their Kindergarten year. The school is dedicated to putting into practice the pioneering work of Dr. Maria Montessori. Montessori, a scientist who was twice nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, is widely recognized for two intertwined educational thoughts. The first is that a child's innate love of leaning and the process of self-construction is best accomplished in a well "prepared environment." The second insight is that children purposefully engaged in such an environment learn to see and appreciate life's interdependent web, growing into fair and peaceful members of their communities. This educational philosophy is at the heart of Mequon Montessori School, informing and inspiring all that we do. Here, teachers guide children toward their full potential by carefully nurturing each child's intellectual, emotional, and social development.

Mequon Montessori School is dedicated to nurturing children's innate love of learning. Here, children develop their abilites and pursue a love of learning in a well-prepared, Montessori environment. Each classroom is multi-aged and staffed by two teachers. All of our head teachers are experienced and certified Montessori educators. Our surrounding communities are diverse, friendly and passionate about learning, working together and having fun!

In addition to our Early Childhood programs, we offer before and after school care for children enrolled in our school.
