Live Oaks Elementary After School Program

Are you looking for a safe, fun, and quality latchkey program for your child ages K through 5th grade?  If so, you've found it at New England School of Montessori!  Located on Quirk Road in Milford, CT., We are among the first 3 stops after children leave Live Oaks on the Durham school bus.  We aim to create a safe environment where children have an opportunity for outdoor play before a nutritious snack is offered.  Homework time is incorporated into the free play environment.  All you'll have to do is check that it's been completed and we invite you to do so at time of pick up.  This way, your evening will progress far more smoothely and that means we've reached our goal...families can have their family time back, stress-free.

NESMontessori...Where children LEARN by DOING...LEARN at their OWN PACE...LEARN what they WANT to LEARN...and DISCOVER their best ATTRIBUTES and INTERESTS, all within the nurturing space that is their HOME AWAY FROM HOME!

Have you ever wondered why the conventional or traditional schools in our country use the same method of teaching young children as they did 100 years ago?  HINT: It is NOT because the human brain learns best that way.  Call a Montessori school to discover the ANSWER for yourself.  Don't wait until your child loses interest in will be too late to start them in a Montessori school.  The best age to begin, ideally, is three (3) and no later than six (6).

Progressive Education for the Elementary Aged Child:

Parents of ELEMENTARY students in Milford, Orange, New Haven, West Haven, Shelton and Stratford....Come visit our classroom for your 1st grade student.  After spending 2-3 half and full days in our classroom for a trial visit, we accept students who are curious learners and who are still EXCITED to learn new things.  We do not focus on standardized state tests and instead, spend a short week in prepartions of our well-rounded Terra Nova test.  Results have shown that our students far exceed the national and state standards on reading, writing and math scores.  And yet, only 2 weeks was afforded in preparations.  The rest of the school year, children discover the Great Lessons, our Cosmic Education as designed by Dr. Maria Montessori during the years she spent living in India.  Rich language experiences are embedded within our classrooms and our Mathematics curiculum far exceeds that of the traditional programs of the current US educational system. Enroll by Kindergarten or First grade for your child to easily acclimate to such a powerfully individualized program.

We are located at 40 Quirk Road in Milford, CT.
