18 months – 6 years old
Founded in 1967 and accredited by the American Montessori Society (AMS) since 2002, Walnut Park Montessori is a joyful early childhood program situated in a charming 19th-century carriage house complete with fascinating period details.
In thoughtfully prepared classrooms, engaging gardens, a state-of-the-art nature playground, and new student center gymnasium and teaching kitchen, this is where the Jackson Walnut Park experience begins for our youngest learners — 18-month-old toddlers through six-year-old kindergarten students.
“As we observe children, we see the vitality of their spirit, the maximum effort put forth in all they do, the intuition, attention and focus they bring to all life’s events, and the sheer joy they experience in living.”Maria Montessori
Children are our future, teach them well and let them lead the way
The toddler years are magic and this is certainly the case at Walnut Park Montessori where our very youngest explorers teach us something new every day, as they experience so many firsts, each one filled with pure awe and wonder.
