Frequently Asked Questions


How does the Summer Program work?
MSD offers a Toddler Program (16-33 months), Children’s House Summer Program (33 mo-Kindergarten), and an Elementary Summer Program (1st-6th graders). Full-day hours are generally from about 8:30am to 3:30pm, with a half-day option ending at 11:15 AM, and before/after care available from 7:30-8:30 and 3:30-5:30. Children bring their own lunches and the school provides snacks. Rates, dates, and exact times are determined each summer, and the upcoming summer’s specifics will be posted above when they’re ready.  Email Info@montessoriduluthmn.org for more information.

How is the summer program different from the year?
We combine our standard Children’s House program with seasonal activities such as gardening, walks to Morley Heights Park and playground, water activities, and more. The Elementary Summer Program focuses on field trips in and around Duluth.

Who can attend?
All children are welcome to attend our summer programming at MSD.

Why Montessori in the summer?
The Montessori methodology sets the gold standard for early child education, designed and practiced according to how human beings develop and how human brains are built to function. Children don’t stop learning in the summer, so why should schooling stop? For this reason, Montessori schools around the globe often open year round to provide children with seamless guidance. See more information about Montessori education here.

Do kids go outside in this summer program?
Enjoying and loving nature is an integral part of Montessori education. Montessori children spend time outside in nature everyday of the week, year round. Children spend time on the playground, go for walks in neighborhood, and take field trips to parks and gardens.
