The Community Montessori

What we do:

The Community Montessori provides high quality, low-cost preschool education for Boone County’s children in poverty. We prepare children to enter elementary with the academic, social, and emotional skills necessary for success.

Why we’re great:

We are the only Montessori school in Columbia that specifically works with families living in poverty. We offer a beautiful, peaceful learning environment with highly trained teachers, individualized educational plans, and a diverse student body.

Why does your organization deserve community financial support?

Seventy-five percent of our families are at or below the poverty line and pay tuition on a sliding scale. We rely on the support of generous donors and community partnerships to purchase essentials for the classroom.
