Welcome to Cedar River Montessori!

Imagine a school where students learn as much from their experiences as they do from the teacher, where social and emotional growth are on equal par with academics, and where a child’s natural curiosity and intrinsic need to know are the most powerful motivators for learning. We invite you to explore our site and learn more about our school. It will make you wish you could be a student here!
