Common Goals.
Uncommon Paths.

You may know the name Montessori. And though Montessori is part of our name, it only begins to describe what makes us different.

We joined the primary education landscape in Omaha in 1984. In those 30 years, we’ve discovered what many parents want for their children. Time-tested learning materials and a variety of educational experiences rooted in core concepts. The opportunity to learn at their own pace. Assistance when needed and the stability of a teacher who knows and understands their child’s strengths. An alternative path to essential skills and knowledge. A school that feels like home.

With parents as our partners, we have created a community that gives our children a chance for a brighter, more fulfilling future.

You’ll see the difference in us – and in your child.

Co-op means “community”. From monthly parent meetings to family movie night to the annual faculty/parent holiday party, the co-op model means activities designed to help us grow as a community.

What’s on Our Minds?

Words like “typical” and “average” aren’t part of our vocabulary at Montessori Co-op School. From our structure to the children who pass through our doors, we are unique in many ways…
