The Montessori School of Douglas County was         
originally opened by a group of parents in 1976, to offer
their children the Montessori approach to education in
our community and we continue that tradition today. In
1980, Lupe Villegas became the Directress of the school
and she is trained to teach children from the age of 18
months to 10 years old according to the Montessori

   In 1996 the school started with one primary class. We
presently enroll children from 18 months to 10 years with
one toddler, three primary and one lower-level elementary
class. Additionally, we offer before and after school care
for working parents.

   Our goal is to offer a rich warm caring, community
environment for the children. We are committed to the
values underlying the Montessori approach to child
development. We are committed to ongoing study in
order to better support the natural and total development
of each child. We are extremely proud of all our faculty and staff.
