A pre-school in our corner of rural central Massachusetts, the Petersham Montessori School offers a unique Montessori education for your child.  We welcome children from the age 2 years 9 months to 6 years of age from local or surrounding towns.

Our school was founded in 1996, following the closing of the local Sisters of the Assumption Montessori, where many of our alumni had begun their Montessori experience.

The Petersham Montessori School is a non-profit organization which is overseen by a board of directors comprised of parents and community members. We are licensed by the Department of Early Education and Care (ECC) of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

The Petersham Montessori School does not discriminate on the basis of gender, race, creed, color, sexual orientation, disability, marital status or national origin.
