Located at the heart of Quincy Center, Whitney Montessori School is a bilingual day school guided by the Montessori philosophy. We offer a dynamic, individualized education that strives to make the most of each student's unique gifts and creative interests.
We use English and Mandarin Chinese as our language of instruction. We believe learning to speak Mandarin and to write Chinese characters train a whole array of cognitive abilities and motor skills. We use a "one-way" immersion model, meaning most students will enter the program with no knowledge of Mandarin. Mandarin language acquisition occurs naturally by using Chinese as the language of instruction during a portion of the school day. In our program, there is at least one teacher who is a native Mandarin speaker and has served as a Mandarin instructor prior to joining the School.
We currently serve children between the ages of 3-6. Please also see information concerning our program hours and tuition.
We believe in having a green footprint and offer a natural environment that supports learning in a safe and simple way. We serve organic snacks whenever possible, hand-built most of our child-size furniture using natural materials, and only use non-toxic, green cleaning products in our classrooms.
We are licensed by the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care.
