Welcome to Butler Montessori

A Montessori Education

As Head of School, I am inspired by the opportunity to fulfill the unique mission of Butler Montessori, which is guided by the work and writings of Dr. Maria Montessori (1870–1952).

At its core, our philosophy is simple: Follow the child.

At Butler Montessori every child is a unique individual, naturally driven to grow, develop and learn. Educational goals include a love of learning, the ability to make appropriate choices and respect for oneself, other people and their physical surroundings. We believe this educational experience works best when each child connects deeply with a caring, compassionate and empathetic adult who strives to provide them with this opportunity.

Thank you to those families who are members of our Butler community. It is an honor and a pleasure to work with your children as their presence here at Butler Montessori enriches the lives of everyone at our school.

For those who are considering joining Butler Montessori, please feel free to schedule a tour! We look forward to sharing the Butler experience with you.
