Sunrise Montessori School warmly welcomes you and your families to our website. We serve children from ages 0 months through the 8th grade. Here at Sunrise Montessori, education is not just a passage of knowledge, nor rote memory. We believe in developing your child’s thinking skills, teaching your child how to learn, develop your child’s interests in the world which we live through practical learning experiences. We teach our children to be compassionate, responsible, respectful, and self-motivated. We look forward to continued growth during the next few years.

Essential Skills for Lifelong Learning
All of the Montessori materials found in every classroom at Sunrise are designed to build essential skills and concepts such as cognitive, social, creative, emotional and physical development, all of which are necessary to help the child become successful lifelong learners. An end-of-term report or progress assessment of your child will follow each student through his or her years at Sunrise Montessori. These will be reviewed with the parents through the parent / teacher interviews.
