children 6 weeks - Kindergarten for the  2018-2019 school year!

Shannon V. - "Our family has just completed our fifth year at Parker Montessori, and it continues to be one of the best decisions we have made for our children. My older son attended from pre-primary all the way through kindergarten and, this year, made the seamless transition to public school gifted program. My younger son completed his final year of primary and will join the kindergarten class in the fall. We wanted an academically challenging environment that would allow our sons to grow intellectually, yet still let them be children. Parker Montessori gave us that and so much more. My children have been loved, respected, and nurtured by a group of professionals who understand the importance of early childhood development and take their jobs very seriously -- but never too seriously to still have fun. I am beyond pleased with the skills and knowledge my sons have acquired at PM. But most importantly, my children were always excited to go to school. They have both grown academically, intellectually, and socially because of the relationships they made and experiences they have had at Parker Montessori. I would highly recommend this school to anyone looking to give their children a great start."

Parker Montessori DayCare / Child care Center in Parker, CO for Infants, Toddlers, Preschool and Kindergarten celebrating 30 years of excellence serving parents of young children.

Why is Parker Montessori better than the other local day care, child care and preschool in Parker, CO ? Parker Montessori preschool provides creative and challenging Montessori classrooms that foster experiential learning and critical thinking. If you are looking for an educational experience for your child that is above other preschool, daycare or childcare, you have come to the right place. We believe an enriched environment, rich for their brain and cognitive development, along with a loving and nurturing setting is crucial for our children’s optimal growth and happiness.

Age birth-6 years is the period when your children are using their bodies, senses and their emerging problem-solving skills to learn about and make sense of their world in ways most meaningful and effective for them.

Dr. Montessori was one of the pioneers in education to recognize that between birth and age 6 in a child’s life is critical to the development of personality and intellect. At this age, children are actively seeking out information, and learn quickly and easily (sensitive period). Toddlers are especially interested in demonstrating their independence.

Our parents voted us the BEST Infant, Toddler, Preschool, and Kindergarten  daycare/childcare Program in Parker, Colorado for 2013, 2014, 2015,2016 & 2017.

We provide a loving, nurturing environment along with a strong fundamental education with reading, writing, science, math, geography, cultural studies and the arts. In addition to the core subjects, our specialty classes in Music and Spanish complement our curriculum. We also provide enriching daycare and childcare services that extend our school day for working families.

If you are looking for your child to get a jump start in elementary school, you need to come in for a tour and check us out. We encourage parents to check out other preschools, child cares and day cares before touring our school, so you can see for yourself why we are better than the other choices. Our hands-on learning gives the children a good foundation for a life-long love of learning. Our typical parents are well-educated professionals who want their children to be well-rounded in academics and routinely encourage their children to follow respect based guidance by practicing kindness and good manners. They understand the value and importance of child care professionals’ knowledge base in their child’s growth. Our families pick us as their first choice after having done extensive research and refuse to let their child be a number in a big corporate chain daycare center. Brain research has shown over and over that, from ages 0-6, children learn through all of their senses, and hence a Montessori enriched environment is perfect for their type of learning. Come see why our children understand advanced math and other concepts, and why they think learning is fun.

Montessori parents know first-hand how the Montessori preschool approach to education supports and nurtures children’s development in all areas: physical, intellectual, language, and social-emotional. Scientific research confirms that Montessori children have an advantage, not only academically, but also in social and emotional development. Our parents are looking for their children to be in a warm, loving environment that nurtures and propels their social, emotional and cognitive development.
