Inspiring Children Who Will Change The World

Wyoming Valley Montessori School welcomes children 18 months through 12 years to its Toddler, Primary, and Elementary Programs. We are an independent, non-profit co-educational day school in Kingston, Pennsylvania, fully accredited by the American Montessori Society and the Middle States Association Commission on Elementary Schools.

The school was founded in 1970 by a group of parents interested in the educational philosophies of Dr. Maria Montessori. It opened its doors to twenty students and one teacher. Today the staff numbers more than twenty-five and the enrollment is over one hundred children. We are located in the Wyoming Valley of Northeast Pennsylvania, just across the Susquehanna River from Wilkes-Barre.

Why Montessori?

Children spend each day with enthusiastic fellow students and creative, dedicated teachers. Children learn at their own pace with lots of encouragement and engaging materials. They know that we care about them and respect them, and they want to come to school.
