Welcome to

Centennial Montessori

Welcome to Centennial Montessori, where we empower children to thrive through authentic Montessori education, fostering their cognitive, social, emotional, and physical growth.

About Us

Nestled south of Denver, near Greenwood Village, we are an authentic Montessori school with a mission to educate and spread Dr. Maria Montessori’s timeless system of education to children and families from birth through 6 years old. While cognitive development is vital to a child’s growth, our qualified, loving and nurturing staff additionally models social, emotional and physical development through lessons and meaningful work, catering to the whole child. Montessori education in the first 6 years of a child’s life paves the road for the child to be her best self, and Centennial Montessori is here to support exactly that.

Why Choose Us

Montessori follows the child’s interests and developmental readiness. The child has lessons modeled by a trained Head Guide who observes the child based on these two components. The child then has the freedom to practice this lesson repeatedly and independently until mastery.

Our Communities

Welcome to our Montessori Community Classrooms, where students of different ages come together to create a nurturing and collaborative learning environment. In our classrooms, younger children are inspired and guided by older children, while the older ones gain confidence and mastery by teaching and mentoring their younger peers. Each level, from Nido to Toddler to Primary, is designed based on the child’s developmental milestones, ensuring a personalized learning experience. Unlike traditional classrooms that group children solely by age, our mixed-age approach allows for natural socialization, reduced behavioral problems, and a focus on individual readiness rather than arbitrary age-based transitions. At our Montessori Community Classrooms, children flourish in a diverse and supportive community.


Nido (“nest” in Italian) is a cozy and loving space intentionally designed for your baby’s rapid development. This infant classroom serves children ages 6 weeks up to 18 months. Your child will develop their core and overall gross motor development in an apparatus free-environment.


Our toddler environment is designed to support the curiosity of your ever-evolving little one. We focus on giving them the independence they desire within a space that is both safe and challenging.​Our toddlers are empowered with daily experiences in which they can authentically engage in preparing food, pouring and measuring, and cleaning up messes.


The Primary environment provides children two and a half to six years old a splendid opportunity for work and play independently as well as in group settings. This program is intended to be a three year cycle and is your child’s first introduction to an academic learning environment. While continuing to provide daily practical life skills, we also enrich each child with math, language, science, geography, sensory/motor and cultural studies.

Exceptional Education and Caring Community

” From the moment we went on a tour of the facility at Centennial Montessori, we knew this was where we wanted our son to be. The cleanliness, attentive staff and familial atmosphere left no doubt of our son’s ability to grow, learn and discover who he is. Surprisingly, our experience has far exceeded expectations. His rapid motor and social development is directly related to his time at CM. The sanitary and organizational traits are truly some of our favorites. He loves cleaning; putting things back where they belong, washing his hands and even “scrubbing” the table clean after eating. We couldn’t recommend CM more as a place for your child to be given the independence (within structure) and attention to develop. We are beyond grateful to be part of the CM family!

Meaningful Growth and Independence

“ As a parent deeply invested in the education and well-being of our children, I am delighted to share our family’s experience at Centennial Montessori. Our 2 sons (now ages 3 & 5) have attended CM for the past 2.5 years and it has truly been an exceptional experience. From the warm greetings during drop-off to the shared celebrations and support among parents and staff, it’s evident that this is more than just a preschool—it’s a tight-knit community. The teachers we have had in both the Toddler & Primary communities have been outstanding. They connect with each child on an emotional and developmental level ensuring that they feel seen, heard, and valued. Their dedication to the Montessori method shines through in every lesson and activity & has ignited in each of our sons a curiosity of the world around them & a genuine passion for learning. Thanks to the warm, nurturing environment created by the teachers & staff, CM is a place our boys genuinely look forward to going each day.

When the time comes, we will be sad to leave CM behind but are forever grateful for the foundation they’ve laid for our sons’ education and moreover, the warm family atmosphere & the “home away from home” they’ve provided for our boys the past few years. We couldn’t be happier with our experience here & recommend to all our neighbors & friends! Read the full review.

And the directors are doing such a great job putting policies and procedures in place to keep children and staff safe during the time of COVID.
