After School Teacher

Franklin Montessori School | Washington, DC, United States

Posted Date 11/17/2023

The Franklin Montessori School is a private preschool serving approximately 180 students ages 3 months to 6 years. Established in 2002, Franklin opened our Washington, DC Forest Hills campus to bring its unique style to an urban setting. A fully accredited American Montessori Society school, we adhere strongly to our mission: We believe that when free, the potential of the human spirit is unlimited. In our thoughtfully prepared environment, children gain confidence and develop the social, physical, and academic skills that will serve them for life. We are guides, as the young child discovers through exploration. From this foundation, the doors to independence, self-discipline, and leadership is unlocked.

With over 19,000 square feet of interior space, the school has 4 fully equipped primary Montessori classrooms, 4 Two-Year-Old classrooms, 3 Infant classrooms, indoor and outdoor play spaces, a well-stocked library, a beautiful art studio for primary children, and access to Rock Creek Park - home of our nature program “Beyond the Walls”.
