Why Choose VMS?

  • 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.
