Tobin Montessori School (PK-5)

Tobin Kids

In 2015, the Tobin Montessori School achieved accreditation by the American Montessori Society (AMS), making it the first AMS-accredited public school in the United States! Teachers hold Massachusetts licenses as well as Montessori Certification.

The Montessori method is based upon Dr. Maria Montessori’s observation of children’s ability to absorb knowledge from their surroundings and their tireless interest in manipulating materials. Her belief was that children possess the intrinsic motivation and ability to teach themselves.

Students at Tobin are engaged in a rich Montessori curriculum that is fully aligned to the Common Core standards. A highly collaborative school, educators provide an environment where diversity is respected and celebrated. Children not only learn how to be independent learners, but they also gain the skills necessary for working collaboratively in the classroom and beyond the walls of our school.

Although there may be some seats available for older children, the typical age of entry for Tobin Montessori is three years old. Montessori classrooms are divided into three learning communities:

Children’s House (ages 3 – 6)
Lower Elementary (ages 6 – 9)
and Upper Elementary (ages 9 – 11)

Signature programs:

  • Montessori
  • Kodaly Music (PK-2 or PK-5)
