The Montessori model of child development supports each individual child’s needs, tendencies and interests. Montessori educators are guides who support each child’s exploration in a beautiful, developmentally-appropriate environment. With mixed age groups, developmentally-appropriate experiences, and a culture of freedom and responsibility, children gain peer learning, social and academic skills, emotional intelligence, and independence, as well as develop curiosity, confidence and compassion that will last a lifetime.

Palisades Montessori is a Montessori school located in the Palisades community of Washington, DC. We have two beautiful classrooms in close proximity to each other. Our Primary Program, located at 2828 Hurst Terrace NW, provides school-year care and education to preschoolers from ages three to five years. Our Infant and Toddler Center, located at 5104 Macarthur Blvd. NW, provides full-year care and education to infants and toddlers from age three months until their entry into the Primary Program.

Palisades Montessori is a warm, loving learning community that has been serving families since 1984. We look forward to welcoming you to our community and nurturing your child during these early days of tremendous possibility.
