Salem Montessori School, based in Roanoke, Virginia appreciates your consideration of our school for your child during these most important years of growth, development, and learning. We recognize that choosing a school is an important, and sometimes challenging, family decision. We are committed to sharing the responsibilities with parents in helping each child reach his or her potential in a safe, healthy, warm and loving environment. Montessori classrooms, unlike some daycare or childcare centers offer an integrated and developmentally based approach to educating the whole child. They are equipped with specialized teaching materials and supporting activities to promote intellectual as well as social growth. Students at Salem Montessori School are honored and respected as the unique individuals that they are. They acquire, through example and action, a love of learning, a strong work ethic, creativity, respect and compassion for others. The skills, qualities and confidence developed during these formative years will serve your child throughout their lifetime.
