Our Programs

Toddler

A child effortlessly absorbs knowledge, language, and culture through the senses.

Primary

We provide children a strong foundation on which to build their blossoming educational career.

Elementary I

Curiosity leads the child to ask the big questions about life.

Elementary II

Children begin to truly realize that learning is a rewarding means to a full and prolific life.

Outdoor

Dr. Montessori felt that the Outdoor Environment should be an extension of the classroom.

Gardens

A garden raised by children naturally inspires discovery, learning, and adventure.

L.E.A.P.

An atmosphere after school to be calm, fun, comfortable, and safe; being “at home” before they go home.

Summer

Summer at MEC brings with it what childhood memories should contain, a time of wonder and exploration.

Observation & Tours

At Montessori Education Centre Charter Schools (MEC), tours and observations may be scheduled by contacting the front office on each campus:

  • For North Campus, please call 480-964-1381 and ask for Sheree Stewart.
  • For Main Campus, please call 480-926-8375 and ask for Danielle Hutterly.

Current parents are welcome to observe the classroom that their child(ren) is enrolled in. MEC recommends scheduling classroom observations after October break. This gives students time to “normalize” and settle into a classroom schedule for the new school year. By choosing to observe after the classroom has established a pattern, you can experience the clearest picture of the Montessori environment your child(ren) experience. When you arrive for an observation, we will share MEC’s Observation Guidelines with you for the optimal outcome of your observation.

For parents that are interested in enrolling in MEC, please call either North Campus or Main Campus at the phone numbers mentioned above and schedule an appointment to tour the campus.
