Montessori was founded in 1907 by Dr. Maria Montessori, an Italian physician, educator and innovator, who developed a child-centered educational approach based on scientific observations of children from birth to adolescence.
Founded in 1965, Richmond Montessori School is the only Montessori school in the Richmond area and surrounding counties that is fully accredited by two external organizations – the American Montessori Society and Virginia Association of Independent Schools.
