DescriptionAbout MCS RI
Montessori Community School of RI is a socio-economically diverse school filled with children, ages 18 months to 6 years, exploring and growing each at their own pace. At MCS RI, we celebrate the uniqueness of each child and family, and create an environment where learning happens joyfully and naturally. We are committed to making our school the first Montessori school in Providence that serves all children regardless of their family's financial status.
The Montessori Method of education, developed by Dr. Maria Montessori, is a child-centered educational approach based on scientific observations of children from birth to adulthood. Dr. Montessori’s Method has been time tested, with over 100 years of success in diverse cultures throughout the world. It is a view of the child as one who is naturally eager for knowledge and capable of initiating learning in a supportive, thoughtfully prepared learning environment. It is an approach that values the human spirit and the development of the whole child—physical, social, emotional, cognitive. (The American Montessori Society)
