Red Cottage Montessori is a pure Montessori school serving children 18 months-5th grade.

Education is a natural process carried out by the child and is not acquired by listening to words but by experiences in the environment.” – Maria Montessori

Red Cottage utilizes the pure Montessori method of education, fully embracing a child’s ability to learn.

This year, Red Cottage expanded to include Upper Elementary!  Our school now includes a Toddler Environment, two Children's Houses, Lower and Upper Elementary.

Each level allows children to experience their worlds through hands-on, purposeful work with their hands in a peaceful learning environment designed specifically to meet their needs.  

This type of learning environment fosters independence, executive functioning skills, positive relationships, and confidence as a learner.

This helps provide the foundation for joyful, motivated, life-long learning.

Our mission reflects our commitment to serving ALL children, no matter gender, ethnicity, ability, or socio-economic status.  Red Cottage usually awards over $70,000 per year in Tuition Assistance to ensure all children are able to attend Red Cottage.  In 2020, we have awarded over $110,000 in assistance to help families offset the impact COVID-19 has had on them. 

As we continue to grow and complete our expansion, your donation from Give To The Max Day will help with new materials and expanding our outdoor learning environments. This will allow us to continue to fund our Tuition Assistance Program as well as provide the best & safest learning environments possible.

Thank you so much!
