Montessori School of Seattle’s goal is to nurture children ages 2 ½ to 6 and encourage their love of learning. It is committed to excellence with a beautiful environment and dedicated teachers who are sensitive to the needs of each child. We believe that the most valid impulse to learning is self motivation. Children are successful when they can work independently with self-confidence and courtesy to others. MSS includes the full curriculum of practical life, sensorial, language, math, history, geography, music, dance and art. Students also enjoy cooking projects, field trips and the use of an outdoor playground within St. Joseph School on Capitol Hill where we have been located since 1979.
