It means we have met or surpassed a long list of rigorous requirements that define a high quality program and have surpassed the requirements of CT Child Care Licensing. We are in the process of getting the AMI certification.
All staff members are always up to date with the Pediatric CPR/First Aid training along with Medication Administration and EPI Pen.
Ellington Montessori School is not a chain or a franchise. Theresa Nobilski started this small school in 2012 and still owns it today. She is involved in every aspect of the school and passionate about the education and safety the school provides.
Ellington Montessori School has partnered with Music Together. Each Music Together collection includes a mix of original songs and traditional tunes from the folk, jazz, and world traditions. Children gain a repertoire of fifty to seventy-five songs a year! What a wonderful foundation for a life-long love of music and music making!
Our Primary Farm Explorers take four trips a year to 4-H Educational Center at Auerfarm. They have educational programs for each season of the year and we enjoy our family picnic at the end of the year at the farm.
This enormously beneficial program for toddlers promotes active learning, early communication skills, and ultimately leads to earlier and richer language development. Teachers have been trained by staff from the American School for the Deaf.
"Ellington Montessori School provides an amazing early education program for kids – I can not recommend them enough! My son started when he was almost 2-years old in the toddler room. He had only been with family up to that point and was very shy and timid. We visited the school, and after meeting with Theresa, we took a leap of faith and enrolled him. It was one of the best decisions we ever made. Our son continued in the primary program until we moved away when he was 5 ½ years old, and he developed a love for learning that continues today. The teachers and his classmates were very encouraging, which built his confidence and really brought him out of his shell. The schoolwork that he did fostered an ability for him to analyze and problem-solve things, which is an amazing trait and skill for a child to have. And he did all this while having FUN! He is now almost 9-years old, and I still see how the foundation of what he learned at EMS impacts his learning potential today. It is a school and program we are forever grateful to have found! Highly, highly recommend!"
