"Fostering a lifetime love of learning, one child at a time."
Vineyard Montessori School is located on the beautiful island of Martha’s Vineyard. For 35 years VMS has provided an educational environment that follows the curriculum and philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori. We strive to guide each child to attaining fulfillment in education, community, nature, imagination and beyond.
"The secret to good teaching is to regard the child's intelligence as a fertile field in which seeds may be sown, to grow under the heat of flaming imagination." Maria Montessori
"It is necessary for the teachers to guide the child without letting him feel her presence too much, so that she may always be ready to supply the desired help, but never be an obstacle between the child and his experience." Maria Montessori
