Since its inception in 1984, Columbus Montessori Education Center has experienced tremendous growth. Beginning in a corner of Redeemer Lutheran Church with a single classroom of 17 children, the school now operates a 27,000-square-foot building located on seven acres of land outside of downtown Columbus. Amid the school’s growth and expansion, Columbus Montessori has remained true to its founding mission of providing a high-quality Montessori learning experience for children from birth through sixth grade.
The school serves a culturally and socio-economically diverse student population. The administration and staff value positive school-home relationships and active community involvement. Most of our teachers hold a minimum of a bachelor’s degree, Montessori credentials, or both. These qualities make Columbus Montessori a truly unique learning environment.
