A warm welcome to all visitors to our web site! We are so very proud of our school and what it has to offer our students, our families and the whole community!

Who we are now

Our programs for young children are housed in two different locations: Rib Mountain Montessori and Montessori Children's Village.

Rib Mountain Montessori has a classroom for children ages four months through two years. This is a lovely, sunny room, with a separate room for sleeping and an outdoor area. The children play, eat and sleep on their own schedule. There are a maximum of eight babies in this classroom. The staff are gentle, kind and nurturing.

Rib Mountain and Montessori Children's Village both have a classroom of children ages two to three. Also, both have a classroom of children ages three through six. This room is called the Children's House and provides an environment where children are able to grow and learn about themselves and about their world. Many of our past parents have told us these years for their child have given him/her a solid foundation for future years.

Due to collaboration with Wausau Public Schools children who are four years old by September first are able to participate in this class 12:30 PM-3:00 PM without a tuition fee (additional hours available). Children who are five years old by September first may attend kindergarten without a tuition fee 8:30 AM-3:00 PM (additional hours available). This is available to residents living in Wausau Public School District. In some circumstances, non-residents of wausau are also eligible for classes without tuition. Please call us for information.

Elementary Montessori (grades 1-5): In 1993 our school also housed a Montessori elementary class. Working with Wausau Public Schools we have successfully moved that class into a Charter Montessori School which is housed at Horace Mann for the first time in the 2005/2006 school year. Please see their web site. Should you have questions about this program please feel free to email Patti Filak at pfilak@yahoo.com or call 715-842-9540.

Our school has regular informational sessions for persons interested in the school or in Montessori Education.
