Hawai’i Montessori Schools’ Kona Campus invites you to an Open House on Saturday, January 14th, 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

You will have an opportunity to visit the classrooms of our Toddler (ages 15-36 mos.) and Primary (ages 3-6 yrs) Programs, meet current families, learn about the school and its programs including financial aid opportunities, and meet faculty members and administrators.

Hawaii Montessori Schools has been part of the West Hawaii community since 1980. The school provides quality education for children ages 15 months through 6 years of age using the principles and methods of Dr. Maria Montessori. The classroom environments are well prepared and allow the children to develop at their own speed, according to each child’s own capacities in a non-competitive atmosphere. Learning takes place through the child’s own discovery and experience. Observers of Montessori students have described them as having developed self-discipline, self-knowledge, self-esteem and independence, as well as enthusiasm for learning, an organized approach to problem solving, and academic skills. Hawaii Montessori Schools has been recognized on the State and Federal levels as being an excellent provider of early childhood education.
