Montessori School Near Olney, Maryland
Low Student-Teacher Ratio in Rockville
You are looking for something different for your child. Perhaps you’ve heard of Montessori schools and like their process. Norbeck Montessori is a premier Montessori preschool and kindergarten that helps develop children’s love of learning and individualism. Of course, you want your child to be ahead of the curve academically, but you also want them to thrive emotionally and socially. The Montessori method emphasizes the importance of other life skills besides academics, like communicating with adults and peers, gaining self-confidence, and developing a lifelong passion for learning.
We can’t wait to meet your family to see if Norbeck is the right fit. Schedule a tour by calling us at 301-924-4233 or contacting us online today!
Montessori Primary Preschool Near Olney
The first five years of a child’s life are the most important for fostering both emotional intelligence and a love for learning. Norbeck Montessori understands this better than any other preschool, so we give children exactly what they need—plenty of knowledge! In our primary preschool program, we allow children the freedom to choose what they learn within certain boundaries. We find that it’s important to make learning itself fun, instead of using gimmicks and colorful decorations to “trick” children into learning. Because developing muscle control is vital during early childhood, many of our lessons are hands-on and many of our tasks (like cleaning, for example) involve small and large muscle movements.
Norbeck Montessori’s Kindergarten Program
Before your child enters grade school, you want them to be ready for any and all curriculum they might encounter. Our accredited kindergarten program (Big K) follows the Montessori method just like our preschool program. The academics are individualized and underscore leadership and critical thinking skills so that your child may go into first grade already ahead.

Norbeck Montessori’s Mission
Our mission is to educate, enrich, and encourage children to reach their fullest potential as curious, independent, socially responsible, kind, and happy individuals.
When our students walk in our classrooms, we want them to transform—to feel secure in themselves and excited to learn! Besides our own experience, research also indicates that the Montessori method benefits all children, regardless of background.
The Benefits of the Montessori Classroom
A large part of the Montessori method involves setting an environment for student success. For children with ADHD or children on the autism spectrum, the calming environment and individualized curriculum are life changing. Even children who do not have ADHD or autism benefit from the pace and tone of the classroom. Our instructors are trained to maintain a relaxed environment that creates a distraction-free and unhurried space for learning.
