Why Choose VMS?

  • "This summer marked the end of 6 amazing years for us with VMS, and to us it was the end of an era! Having our 2 boys come through VMS was one of the best choices we've made as parents thus far."
  • "I still remember the day we brought [or son] for a tour. VMS was the first school we visited, and it's been our gold standard of schools ever since! I was sold as soon as you welcomed us in the door. Now [our younger son] has finished kindergarten and it's hard to imagine life with walking in through that red door every school day."
  • "THANK YOU for providing such  a caring, nurturing, safe environment for our family. We have been so spoiled by our VMS family and frankly haven't found the same feeling of community anywhere else. Our boys have grown tremendously as individuals and I know that the foundation that Village laid for them will impact them for years to come."
  • "We'll miss everything about VMS, from our daily morning greeting with you, to our friends and teachers, fun activities, neatly-organized lessons, field trips, Leaders' Club, and so much more."
  • "We will always look back fondly on our years at VMS. We hope you can call on us to support VMS in the future. Best..."

Village Montessori School has served Montgomery Village, Gaithersburg and upper Montgomery County communities since 1987.

  • VMS is a Montessori school with a full, 30 year history.
  • More than just a school, VMS strives to promote a sense of community among our students’ families.
  • Cultural diversity is celebrated at Village Montessori School.
  • Each child is viewed as an individual and treated with respect.
  • Our school is conveniently located near a number of major commuter routes, while still maintaining a neighborhood feel.
  • VMS resides on nearly 2 acres of land, most fenced, with ample space for planned and spontaneous activities, whether in our open field or on our large playground. Access to those areas is just outside each classroom’s door.
  • Our staff brings a variety of experiences and tenure, providing a rich learning environment for your child.
  • Field trips and in-school cultural, civic, and science events provide students with a wide range of experiences.
  • Our competitive tuition covers all expenses; there are no add-on expenses or hidden costs. (It should be noted that optional extra-curricular activities, because they are through outside sources, are an additional fee.)
  • We accept Maryland State Department of Education Child Care Subsidy and Montgomery County WPA vouchers.
  • Each child in the primary program receives weekly art, music and fitness instruction, and children in our Two-Year-Old Program enjoy music instruction weekly.
