Where Children Build Their Foundation for Success!

Acton Montessori School is dedicated to providing an educational foundation for your child's success through a balance of socialization and academics.  Our beautiful space, conveniently located in historic West Acton, offers an open classroom environment that nurtures children's spirits while they engage with our extraordinary teachers.



For 30 years I have owned, taught and directed Montessori preschools in Massachusetts.  After being located for 19 years on Newtown Road in Acton, our school transitioned to a beautiful new location in the center of vibrant West Acton.  


West Acton is a growing area that provides an exceptional learning environment for students and parents.  Our new home is situated across from Gardner Field, a safe and wide-open outdoor green space where students can play.  We also offer a private school patio, where students enjoy lunch and participate in other exciting science and practical life projects.


Fostering a sense of community for our students and parents is an important part of the Acton Montessori education.  Our partnership with The Acton School of Ballet and Revolution Yoga enables students to participate in weekly yoga, music and movement classes in beautiful indoor spaces only steps away from our school.



One of our most valuable assets is our school's intimate classroom environment. Parents seeking the best teacher-student ratio will find it at our school.  The student teacher ratio is six to one.  Our superb staff's extensive Montessori experience provides your child with the skills they need to grow into successful, independent thinkers. It's the next best place to home.


I know that the most important investment you can make is in your child's education.  

Action Montessori can provide an environment where your child will prosper and grow.  I invite your family to be part of our community and encourage you to schedule a time to tour our school.

Thank you for your interest in the Acton Montessori School!

Warm Regards,
