Elm City Montessori opened in August 2014 and we’re growing each year until we serve PreK-3 through 8th grade (ages 3 through 14). This year we have 4 Primary classrooms (ages 3-6) and 3 Elementary classrooms (ages 6-9). Next year, we will have 190 students and will add a new Upper Elementary classroom (ages 9+).

Interested families may visit ECMS for tours every Thursday at 9:30am in February and March. Please call 203-903-4031 and ask to speak with our Director of Operations and Family Partnership Coordinator, Che Dawson, to sign up.
