At CREC Montessori Magnet School, we are proud to be the first Public Montessori School in Connecticut. Our Association Montessori International (AMI) recognition status is the most esteemed affiliation in the Montessori community.

We implement these five essential Montessori practices at our school:

  • Mixed-age grouping, which fosters independence, cooperation, and discovery.
  • Large blocks of uninterrupted time for self-directed work.
  • An environment that allows for maximum freedom of movement and choice.
  • An overall emphasis on intrinsic motivation rather than rewards or punishments.
  • Prepared staff who are skilled at observation, preparing an environment, and interacting with children in positive, respectful ways.
