Cultivating a Learning Environment Aligned with a School’s Mission

The Montessori School of Central Vermont serves children from the age of 18 months through the age of 12 with a Toddler Program (18-36 months), a Primary Program (ages 3-6), and an Elementary Program (ages 6-12).  The school’s mission is “to provide a learning environment that supports the development of a genuine sense of self and social responsibility in our children as citizens of the world”.  This project doubles the size of the existing structure with a new addition, giving the school the opportunity to tailor the building to their ideal learning environment with expanded and flexible spaces.  The addition will provide a new main entry into the building, two much needed elementary classrooms sized for project based learning, a nap room, and a multi-purpose room which will provide ample and flexible indoor activity space.   This addition is currently under construction.
