Imagine an environment especially designed and scaled for a child's curiosity and power to learn! ~ Maria Montessori

Give us a call to schedule an appointment to tour our school and see what we have to offer! 



Our mission at Monarch Montessori School is to create an environment that inspires children to develop inner discipline, self-assurance, and a love of learning.  We respect the uniqueness of each child by helping them develop skills at periods of greatest readiness and sensitivity.


Our philosophy at Monarch Montessori School is to provide a unique and positive alternative to traditional schools, both public and private, in the Elk River area.  Our program provides a creative, adaptive environment that responds to the needs of the children.  We seek to balance academic and social development to foster responsibility and cooperation within a supportive learning community.  The children, the parents, and the staff communicate clearly and openly, and treat each other with honesty and mutual respect.

Monarch Montessori School will employ the philosophy and materials of Maria Montessori to provide an educational experience of a lifetime.  We will maintain a Christain atmosphere, with a non-denominational prayer at mealtime.  We will discuss Christain holidays, along with the stories at an appropriate level for the age group.  Holiday stories will be kept non-denominational and basic.


Monarch Montessori School is located at 19277 Vernon Street in Elk River, Minnesota (by Meadowvale Elementary School) and serves the Elk River, Otsego, Rogers, Zimmerman, Big Lake, and Monticello communities.  We are easily accessible from Hwy 10 and Hwy 169.
