Pre-Montessori, Kindergarten, & Elementary
Our mission at Parkcenter Montessori and Montessori Academy is to follow the teaching philosophy of Maria Montessori through a well-prepared environment that meets the needs and challenges of all children. We strive for academic excellence through practical exercises in the areas of Language, Math, Geography, Science, Sensorial and Practical Life. We commit to instilling in the child a natural and ongoing curiosity toward the world around him or her and create a true love of learning that will stay with the child throughout life. We strive to promote social graciousness and caring for each other and the environment. To meet the needs of each child’s individual spirit, we allow him or her the freedom to explore, make mistakes, question and grow at a pace comfortable to the child. Our mission is to create an environment that allows a child to feel a sense of belonging, to feel safe and secure, and to develop and strengthen his or her self-esteem. We hold firm to the words of Maria Montessori herself, "The education of the very young child does not prepare him for school, but for life."

Eagle Montessori opened in the fall of 1998 and on July 1st, 2013 we will be closing the doors of Eagle Montessori and joining forces with our sister school, Montessori Academy. What an exciting and educational 15 years we have had at this beautiful location. We are thrilled to have on staff 3 teachers that helped open this school and will now move over to Montessori Academy with us, bringing their wealth of Montessori experience with them. We are looking forward to this move and welcome you to come out and visit the staff and our school, Montessori Academy. Here is to many more years educating the children of the Treasure Valley in the Montessori Method!
