NEWBURYPORT – Newburyport Montessori School at 20 Pleasant St. will hold an open house for interested parents Sept. 25 from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m.

The open house will include an introduction to Montessori education and tours of the school.

After opening in fall 1971, Newburyport Montessori is one of the longest-established Montessori schools on the North Shore and enrolls children from 18 months through kindergarten.

The school is open from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. In addition to the September-to-June school year, the school offers a 10-week summer program from June through August. This year, there is a new full-day toddler program as well.

The goal of a Montessori education is to provide a nurturing environment that supports each child’s academic and social development and stimulates creative, independent learning, according to a press release. 

Dr. Maria Montessori, Italy’s first female doctor, has had a profound influence on education over the past century. The Montessori curriculum is now implemented on six continents.
