Educating The Whole Child In An Authentic Montessori Environment

Cedar Valley Montessori School exists to help children from age two through six grow socially, emotionally, intellectually, and spiritually in an environment that emphasizes individualized learning and respect. CVMS programs are structured to create thoughtful, independent and confident learners who have respect for themselves and the world around them. Utilizing the 19th century educational philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori, CVMS stays true to what the celebrated Italian educator "said, did, and wrote."

CVMS is unique in its offering of Summer Programs with rich curriculum and off-site educational oppportunities, as well as our Studio Programs for families whose children desire extracurricular options like dance, music, cooking, sports, and art classes.

We invite you to learn more about CVMS by exploring our deep roots in the Cedar Rapids community, our talented team of faculty and staff who are commited to each child's growth and development, our Emeritus Faculty whose vision and dedication to hundreds of children continues to guide our teaching philosophy, and our dedicated volunteer Board of Directors who help chart the future of CVMS.

If you are considering enrolling your child at CVMS, we urge you to schedule a tour -- in-person or virtual options are available currently -- to see firsthand the difference that a hands on, authentic Montessori education can make in the life of your family. You can also get a flavor for CVMS through our short video that offers vignettes from current and past families. 

Additionally, our Head of School is available to talk with families about customizing their Montessori experience at CVMS.
