Programs

Dirigo Montessori School offers several programs for the 2017-2018 school year. Families can choose between a three, four or five day Montessori Morning schedule (8:30-11:30 a.m.) with several options to extend your child’s day.

Three day/week schedules reserved only for incoming three year olds. Four and five year olds must be enrolled for a minimum of four days/week and five year olds must be enrolled for five days/week.

It is important that families interested in enrolling their child look at our program as a three year cycle with the Kindergarten year as a cumulative part of your child’s educational development. Kindergarteners must be enrolled in the ‘School Day’ program from 7:30 a.m.-2 p.m, Monday through Friday.

Please review the current Programs and Tuition list for details and fees. Enrollment is limited to 20 children per day.

Dirigo Montessori School follows the Ellsworth School Department calendar regarding school opening, snow days, vacations, holidays, and closings with the exception of some teacher workshop days so that DMS staff may attend local and/or national Montessori teacher workshops and conferences.

The mission of Dirigo Montessori School is to provide creative and stimulating intellectual, artistic, and developmental experiences for pre-school and kindergarten aged children (3-6 years old). We strive to nurture each child’s innate desire to learn and to foster his/her natural curiosity and love of knowledge. True to the classical origin of its name, Dirigo Montessori School mentors its students in their first steps to becoming tomorrow’s leaders.
