Welcome to a great new year! 2013 - 2014

"Free the child's potential and you will transform him into the world"   Maria Montessori

This school year has gotten off to a great start with the children, families and teachers all getting into the routine and learning how to navigate the classroom. The children have been presented many lessons already in the short time since they have been here. They have focused on how to roll the mats and how to listen to a story along with lessons on sharing and taking turns....

Our Mission

Our Mission:

To provide quality care and education that fosters the child’s natural ability to learn while promoting self confidence, social/cognitive development and independence. We uphold this mission by providing services to families who may not otherwise afford the benefits of quality early childhood education.

The MLK Montessori School Mission

Martin Luther King Montessori School ("MLKMS") currently provides a comprehensive full day, full year preschool and kindergarten program for children ages three to six years. One of only two Montessori schools in the United States to offer a quality Montessori education to low-income families at an affordable cost, we’ve enriched the lives of more than 5,000 children since our start in 1968. At MLKMS students receive much more than an academic jumpstart. Representing humanness in all its forms, those who pass through our halls are encouraged to embrace a diverse world and a brighter future.

MLK Montessori School Celebrates 45 Years

Martin Luther King (MLK) Montessori School is celebrating its 45th year anniversary. Throughout the school's history we have  strived to provide a Montessori education to preschool children that enriches their growth, development and dreams. Come help us celebrate!
