Fernwood Montessori School was originally founded as Lone Oak Montessori by Pat Swann in 1981. Since its inception, the school has been a place where children have been nurtured intellectually, socially, physically, and emotionally. Lone Oak Montessori School officially became Fernwood Montessori School in 2017 and has since then continued to thrive. The Montessori materials allow for a hands-on approach to learning, extensively covering the subject areas of language, math, geography, and science. Our mixed age classrooms aid in the social development of our children, allowing older children to act as “role models” for our younger students. Fernwood continues to work to meet the needs of all children and strives to foster a greater love of nature through planning the eventual creation of a natural playscape.
Through community building, we look forward to welcoming you personally to Fernwood, and sharing more of the wonderful opportunities that our school has to offer.
