Elm City Montessori opened in August 2014 and we’re growing each year until it serves PreK-3 through 8th grade (ages 3 through 14). This year we have 4 Primary classrooms (ages 3-6) and 1 elementary classroom (ages 6-9). Next year, we will have 140 students and will add a new elementary classroom.

Interested families may visit ECMS for tours every Thursday at 9:30 am. Please call 203-903-4031 and ask to speak with our Family Partnership Coordinator, Amelia Sherwood, to sign up.
