Our student body, ages 2-1/2 to 6 years old, is culturally, ethnically, and racially diverse. Located in the north Cleveland Park neighborhood. Auguste attracts students from a wide radius of northwest DC and Maryland neighborhoods. Founded in 1997 by our director Valerie O'Connor with a small group of parents, our vibrant community has grown to include many alumni. Many siblings and cousins attend together. Our Auguste alumni love to return regularly to work with the little ones in the classroom and participate in holiday events. We are proud of the bonds our families have forged with the school and with one another.
Auguste Montessori School respects each child as an individual and commits to developing each as a child of the world. We are dedicated to providing a nurturing and empowering environment to support the whole child: intellectual, spiritual, social, emotional, and physical. We practice an Association of Montessori Internationale (AMI) curriculum that is filled with joyful learning, opening the children to embrace the world with confidence and purpose. Furthermore, we work with the children to create a purposeful and beautiful community where reverence for wisdom, joy, connectedness, honesty, and integrity is manifest in all school activities.
The objective of Auguste Montessori School is to provide a strong foundation and foster perseverance and belonging.
Every human is a work in progress. We continually seek progress toward these goals for all children:
Auguste is our director's passion and calling. Director Valerie O'Connor brings the children an intellectual curiosity in both humanities and the sciences and brings to her staff team management experience.
All of our teachers and assistants have Montessori training and continue to augment our program with summer training and professional development. We encourage professional development not only in child development and learning but also art, nutrition, and other curricula that help us support the whole child. We are committed to working as a team that builds on our staff's many and varied talents.
