Special Programs

Sparking the Imagination through Creativity

At Denison Montessori, we believe that creative expression is essential to learning. By exploring specials classes such as music, art, PE, technology, and Cultural Science, our young learners develop crucial self-discovery and creative problem-solving skills while nurturing their innate ability to learn and explore.

Educating the Whole Child

We have a Restorative Practices Coordinator with a ‘Peace Place” and Community classes for social-emotional learning. In addition, we allow children opportunities to connect with nature by planting in our gardens, composting, and interacting with classroom pets. By participating in community service and volunteer projects, students learn the joy of serving others, develop compassion and empathy, and help make their communities and the world a better place.
