Garfield Montessori School founded in 1983, is a full member of the American Montessori Society, Colorado Montessori Association, and licensed by the state of Colorado for 50 children, ages 2 ½ through 6. GMS is classic Montessori with mixed aged classes. Dr. Montessori believed that when children at various stages of development learn from and with each other, they form a strong community of learners. The goal of our Montessori program is to nurture the whole child by meeting each child’s unique intellectual, emotional, social, and spiritual needs. With the guidance of our certified Montessori teachers, children develop excellent living and learning skills.
Each child is full of potential. Our mission is to foster competent, responsible, and independent citizens who are innovative problem solvers. We encourage the culture of peace by teaching children an awareness of diversity, tolerance, and friendship.
