Old Colony Montessori School
Signed up April 11, 2016

Old Colony Montessori School (OCMS) has offered quality education to children living on Boston’s South Shore for more than forty years. As one of the oldest Montessori schools in the country, fully accredited and recognized by Association Montessori Internationale (AMI), Old Colony Montessori is proud to offer nurturing multi-age classrooms that emphasize social, emotional, physical and intellectual development. Old Colony Montessori prepares children for lives of initiative and meaningful involvement in their community.

Founded on the research and philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori, OCMS creates the foundation that children need for healthy development and a passion for life-long learning. Montessori philosophy is based on a love and respect for the dignity and individuality of every child, helping each to realize his or her full potential throughout life.

OCMS students have been hailed for their productivity, creativity, and ability to be good friends and teammates. Whether moving on to private or public schools, they are leaders, independent thinkers, learners and creators. We have had students return to us from Harvard, Yale and Princeton, as doctors, lawyers, philanthropists, and yes, Montessori teachers! We are proud of the solid citizens we send off into the community and the world.
