Michigan’s First Montessori School ~ Established 1956

Our mission is to follow Maria Montessori’s principles to assist children in discovering and developing their full potential and becoming citizens of the world.

  • Montessori children are unusually adaptable. They have learned to work independently and in groups. Since they’ve been encouraged to make decisions from an early age, these children are problem-solvers who can make appropriate choices and manage their time well.
  • They have been encouraged to exchange ideas and discuss their work freely with others. Their good communication skills ease the way in new settings.
  • Research has shown that the best predictor of future success is a positive sense of self-esteem. Montessori programs, based on self-directed, non-competitive activities, help children develop strong self-images and the confidence to face challenges and change with optimism.
  • Oak Trails School is licensed by the state, accredited by the Department of Education and a member of the Michigan Association of Day Care Providers.
  • Oak Trails serves children ages 2 3/4 through 6. We offer preschool, kindergarten, transitional first grade, and a summer program.
  • Oak Trails is a nonprofit corporation, nonsectarian, and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex, and creed, national or ethnic origin.
