Columbus Montessori Education Center 

When CMEC first opened its doors, it operated inside a small wing of a local church. In its commitment to providing more students access to a Montessori education, CMEC moved to its current seven-acre location on James Road in 1992. The spacious and thoughtfully planned environment in our school and innovative outdoor learning spaces provide our students with the opportunity to grow and learn.   As part of our commitment to the community, our outdoor learning spaces are open to the community when the school day ends.

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.
