Welcome to Montessori on the Mall

An authentic Montessori Preschool with an inspired approach in Downtown Denver

Welcome to Montessori on the Mall, where we recognize how important beginnings are in each child’s development, and to each family. We provide a safe, nurturing and engaging environment where your child can learn and develop to their full potential. 

We are a full service Montessori school serving nidos (infants) through kindergarten.  Our Montessori program gently weaves in early education best practices that inspire children to develop a lifelong love of learning through enhanced experiences in Movement, Art, Science, Engineering, Math and Technology.
