About back bay montessori school...

The School

Back Bay Montessori is a brand new facility within a secured environment. Our school offers children from the ages of 2 through 6 a challenging and enriched Montessori curriculum in a warm and nurturing environment. Our goal at Back Bay Montessori is to allow a child the freedom to explore and develop a true love of learning which they will keep with them long after leaving our school.

Our facility at Back Bay Montessori, offers parents and children alike, a sense of warmth and security in truly pleasant surroundings. The classrooms are large and well arranged to stimulate children's interests, while still being cozy and comfortable. Our playground area is a child's dream. It includes playground equipment to develop large motor skills and sand areas.

One important point is that at Back Bay Montessori "hot lunches" are available for purchase daily.

School hours

School hours are from 7:00 AM - 6:00 PM Monday thru Friday, with the exception of noted holidays. Academic hours are 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM.
