Our infant and toddler communities provide our youngest students, ages 10 months through 36 months, with a loving, caring, safe, and enriching environment within which to grow and learn.Our primary community is for children ages three through kindergarten. Whether preparing snack, creating a watercolor map of Earth’s continents and oceans, singing songs with friends, learning to read, doing big, exciting math problems using Maria Montessori’s wonderful manipulative math materials, running outside at recess, or engaging in any one of many, many other activities that are a part of each and every school day at Deschutes River Montessori School, our students feel joy in their education and a thirst for knowledge.
