About

Moultrie Montessori School
Moultrie Montessori School

An environment where the spirit of the child is nurtured so that knowledge, skills, and values are developed for life.

Moultrie Montessori School offers education for children ages 18 months through twelve years old, sixth grade. Based on the Montessori principles, Moultrie Montessori School’s goal is to foster a love of work and learning by meeting each child’s individual needs in their developmental stages so that they can discover their true potential.

We strive to provide a fertile soil and healthy habitat where growing minds, hearts, and bodies can become strong and blossom. We create a foundation for well-rounded individuals who will reach their true potential in life.

Why Montessori?

As the first woman physician in Italy, Dr. Maria Montessori developed the framework for the only educational system in the world that has continued to work for over a hundred years. If she were alive now, she would see that this kind of education is revolutionizing how children learn, which is exactly what she anticipated.

A Message From

Our Founder

Montessori offers the best chance a child has to achieve his or her potential. That is because Montessori works from the inside out. It is a whole organization of the child physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually that allows the child to become his or her very best self.” 
– Jeannie Buskirk, founder of Moultrie Montessori School 

“Whoever touches the life of the child touches the most sensitive point of a whole which has roots in the most distant past and climbs toward the infinite future.”

– Dr. Maria Montessori

We discovered that education is not something which the teacher does, but that it is a natural process which develops spontaneously in the human being.”

– Dr. Maria Montessori

“Let us leave the life free to develop within the limits of the good, and let us observe this inner life developing. This is the whole of our mission.

– Dr. Maria Montessori
