About Patience Montessori

Quality Care

We provide the kind of quality childcare and creative learning environment for which you have been searching. Early childhood education takes on new meaning when the child’s natural curiosity is encouraged and rewarded. Attending our school is a positive growth experience for all children.

Superior Facility

Our state-of-the-art facility in Boulder, CO has been carefully designed to accommodate the complex needs of young children. You can relax during the day, confident that your youngster is safe and secure in a setting geared to enhance learning. This warm and inviting atmosphere is the next best thing to home.

Trained Teachers & Extra Activities

Key staff members are professionally trained in the Montessori principles of education. Support staff includes specialists in Foreign Languages, Gymnastics, America Sign Language (ASL), music, and art. Teaching methods are consistent throughout the school, which makes for a smooth transition as students move from one class to another.

Our active, self-directed educational process fosters the utmost in creative thinking. We empower the children via a unique balance of freedom and responsibility, both in and out of the classroom. These early academic experiences create a joy of learning that lasts a lifetime. Numerous onsite extracurricular activities are options that you may select for your child; these include piano lessons, dance, and fitness programs.

Individualized Attention

Each child is thoroughly evaluated and personally guided through a self-paced curriculum. This accounts for individual differences and enables the children to progress at their own speed. Thus, the level of stress is minimized, and they are free to set up their own challenges (even choose the order of their work). It has been shown that learning actually occurs faster in the absence of fixed, imposed constraints.

Enriched Curriculum

Rich curricula are planned for all ages. Language development, strong vocabulary, and enhanced general knowledge are emphasized at all levels. Primary classes also focus on practical life, sensorial, early reading and math, as well as cultural experiences.  Furthermore, enrichment activities are ongoing, with two or three continually being made available to the children at no extra cost.

Hours of Operation

The hours of operation for the establishment are from 7:30am until 6:00pm, Monday through Friday.  We are open year round, with the exception of holidays
paralleling standard holiday periods. Numerous options exist for class schedules, including full day, two and three days a week.
