We are very proud to be recognized by the readers of Omaha Magazine as the Best Preschool in Omaha!

Do you want more than a traditional daycare, preschool, or childcare center in Omaha for your child? Omaha Montessori offers Montessori programs for children ages 6 weeks to 6 years, and we nurture each child’s desire to blossom. 

MONTESSORI-CERTIFIED TEACHERS EXPERTLY GUIDE YOUR CHILD
Instructors are equipped with a Bachelor’s degree, as well as two years of Montessori training. Each teacher holds a Montessori AMS accreditation, and our school is an AMS full member site, which means we meet the standards of excellence of Montessori educators worldwide.

A MULTI-AGE CLASSROOM IS IDEAL FOR EARLY LEARNING
Children learn at their own pace! Children can build stronger relationships, the older children can show leadership and become mentors to their younger peers, and the younger children can model the older children. This arrangement mirrors real-life experiences where the reality is that they will be working with and across many chronological ages. 

INFANT PROGRAM | 6 WEEKS TO 18 MONTHS

YOUR BABY AS AN INVENTOR AND EXPLORER WITH RIE® EDUCARERS®
With the RIE® Educaring® Approach, babies are viewed and spoken to in ways that allow them to be active participants in their daily lives. The deep respect this approach engenders is the start of self-love and self-esteem.

CHILDREN ARE GIVEN THE SPACE TO EXPLORE FREELY
If your child is learning to grasp, they get more grasping opportunities. When they start to pull up, they’ll have more opportunities to pull up in their space. Through observations, teachers follow their interests so that they can explore freely.

ARTS AND CRAFTS SPARK YOUR BABY’S CREATIVE ABILITIES
Your baby will be introduced to expression through art because artistic expression begins early! Through a specialized art program, your child will develop motor skills and explore their imagination through creativity. 

TODDLER PROGRAM| 18 MONTHS TO 3 YEARS

ART PRACTICE INCREASES YOUR CHILD’S CREATIVITY
Your child explores a world of expression and creativity as they choose colors and textures to explore. Art practice also improves fine motor skills, making things like gripping a pencil easier.  

EACH CHILD LEARNS AT THEIR OWN PACE
By observing your child, providing the right lesson when they’re ready, and letting them practice until mastered, your child excels at every level. Montessori teachers emphasize process rather than product.

RESPONDING RESPECTFULLY WITH RIE© EDUCARING©
The RIE® Educaring® approach encourages responding to your child respectfully. We are the only school that boasts this additional education level and training for the teaching team that guides your child every day. 

PRESCHOOL PROGRAM | 2.5 TO 6 YEARS

MONTESSORI MATERIALS THAT TEACH THROUGH EXPLORATION
Your child is free to choose activities guided by their curiosity, to develop their strengths and talents. Montessori materials also have built-in challenges, so your child develops critical thinking, creativity, and problem-solving skills. 

MULTI-AGE CLASSROOMS HELP YOUR CHILD LEARN FROM PEERS
In a multi-age classroom, your child gains inspiration from older students and becomes a leader for younger students. A diverse mini-community helps your child learn through seeing empathy and kindness in action.

SELF-LED LEARNING BUILDS CRITICAL THINKING SKILLS
Montessori-educated teachers give equal parts guidance, structure, flexibility, and freedom. Your child practices reasoning as they question, probe, and make connections, growing into enthusiastic, self-directed learners.

My son started at the Montessori Infant House and transitioned into the Montessori toddler village in February- our experience has been nothing short of amazing! As a first time mom I was very hesitant to leave my son with others, but from the first day, and as he transitions through the program, I am SO glad I enrolled him here! The staff are all friendly, approachable and caring. Ms. Gladys and Ms. Sarah implement the perfect balance in the classroom to ensure the development of the students- it’s truly remarkable to see what children are capable of at such a young age! Thank you for all that you do! Also, the school organizes various events throughout the year which is a great opportunity for families to see how their children interact, meet other families and have lots of fun! I love knowing that my son is in good hands.
