Education as a mission

The skills and habits that children develop in a Montessori classroom will last their entire lifetimes.

Established in 1987 with 17 students and a mission to develop and nurture “the whole child," May River Montessori provides an outstanding education to 190 full-time students, from preschool to sixth grade. 

Though much of our success is due to the dedication of our caring teachers and staff, the longstanding tradition of family and community involvement has also been integral to cultivating a strong educational foundation. 

We are proud to celebrate 30 years of fostering the future of our children in South Carolina's Lowcountry. 

Mission Statement May River Montessori School's mission is for the parent(s), child and teachers to come together to educate the whole child to their fullest potential through the implementation of the Montessori Method and Philosophy. Thus, the young child experiences the joy of learning in an environment in which intellectual, moral, spiritual, physical and social growth flourish.
