We care for your children and  because we care we want each and every one of them to thrive.  Thriving beyond here at FMS is more than a tagline, it’s a way of being, a way of doing, a way of taking every child on their own unique journey.   Your child is important to us, central to all that we do.  Your hopes and desires for your child matter to us.  Your daily dilemmas as a parent are shared with us so we can work together to find the best possible solutions.  We might not always get that right but in our experience, it’s all in the partnership, something called the Montessori triangle that is a meeting of minds between parents, students and the school.

We’re excited to travel with you on your family’s  Montessori journey.  We’re grateful that you have entrusted the education of your children to us.  We don’t take that responsibility lightly.  We can’t wait to get to know your child in a truly meaningful way.

Here’s our 2022 Parent Handbook, we hope you enjoy reading all about FMS.

If you need any support on anything  then please feel free to reach out to any of the staff at FMS.  We are here for you.
