Welcome to Mountain West Montessori

Choosing a school for your child is one of your most important responsibilities as a parent. And as most parents, we are sure you would want to have your children be educated in an environment that fosters their intellectual abilities as well as their self esteem, where their imagination and curiosity are cultivated, where critical thinking and competencies are nourished, where children learn to respect all cultures and all people and where guides (teachers) care deeply for the whole person who is their student…and your child.

We believe this is Mountain West Montessori.

All Children Learn Differently Workshop and Conference

Montessori schools offer beautiful environments for children to develop their full potential. MACAR provides a more in depth study of Montessori pedagogy for all children, specially for those who learn differently such as children exhibiting traits of ADHD and Dyslexia. Parents, teachers and Montessori guides should come and learn about the great possibilities MACAR offers to enhance all learning styles.
