Since 1963, Nardin Montessori has guided students to develop their individual talents and cultivate their intellect, character, and courage to make a difference in the world.

Founded on the belief that children learn best in an environment that supports and respects their unique development, Nardin Montessori students are instructed and encouraged by an expert faculty of Montessori certified teachers. Our carefully curated classrooms and deliberately designed materials create a unique space in which students have the opportunity to engage in learning, exploration, experimentation, and discovery. The program works to foster respect for others, independent learning, and an appreciation of nature; our students' experiences are complemented by our West Ferry campus' park-like setting, with beautiful gardens and play areas for them to enjoy.

The Montessori Elementary curriculum is characterized by individualized instruction, small group lessons, and long periods of uninterrupted work time. In addition to expanded academic subjects, including public speaking and performance, students' educational experiences are enhanced by shopping trips to the Lexington Co-Op for cooking class ingredients, multiple field trips to cultural institutions, rollerblading in the Fall, and ice skating in the Winter.

The Toddler and Early Childhood programs are nestled in a stately home on West Ferry while the Montessori Elementary classroom is housed on the Cleveland Avenue campus.
