Grand Lake Montessori was founded in 1978 as an independent Montessori day school. Formerly known as Casa dei Bambini (or House of Children – in Italian) it was named after the very first Montessori school established in Rome in 1906. GLM has grown to more than 170 students, educating children 18 months through Kindergarten and is now opening an Elementary Program in August 2016. GLM operates year round orienting all of our new students into the program throughout the summer time.
We believe that childhood is a journey, not a race. That by teaching thoughtfully, cherishing ethnic differences, and actively cultivating a partnership between children, families and teachers, we promote a community of life-long learners.
