Gateway Montessori School

We are Boulder County’s premier Montessori nonprofit private school specializing in early childhood education. Residing in Longmont, CO for over thirty years, we have set the standard for providing the highest quality Montessori experience. Our unwavering integrity and commitment to classic Montessori principles has set us apart from other preschool/kindergarten programs. Gateway Montessori School is dedicated to serving the families in the community by providing a high quality Montessori program to children and their parents. 

We foster the growth of the whole child, each child is respected as an individual and is encouraged to develop at his or her own pace. We believe that each child is unique and special in his or her own personality and individual growth style. We nurture the love of learning by laying the foundations for a creative life. Gateway Montessori School is licensed by the State of Colorado and is a member of the AMS, (American Montessori Society), CMA, (Colorado Montessori Association), and NAMTA, (North American Montessori Teachers Association). We have also earned the Healthy Eating, Active Living designation from Boulder County Health Department and the Eco-Healthy Child Care designation from Children’s Environmental Health Network.

Our school slogan, “we nurture the love of learning," speaks to the culture of our community and what we strive to instill in the children who come through our doors. Testimonials: “My son loves school! He is always happy to go and really appreciates his teachers and friends. The classroom functions as a small family encouraging kindness, respect, and helpfulness. He is learning the important life skills all while becoming his own unique person. I love hearing about his works and seeing the skills he's mastered. There is nothing better than knowing your child is safe and thriving in his environment away from home.” “Gateway truly cares for the whole child and works to develop each individual to their own potential. It's amazing to see your little one grow right before your eyes. We love this school!”

What is unique or special about your school?
In June Gateway finished construction of their new playground. On most days you are sure to see children playing in the sandbox, running up and down the hill, swinging, enjoying the peace garden and creating chalk masterpieces on the cement. The children have absolutely enjoyed the space and take full advantage of all that it has to offer. Stay tuned: We are excited to announce that Gateway is in the planning stages of opening a toddler classroom! In May Gateway received the ECHO (Early Childhood Health Outdoors) Seed Grant providing the school with funding to create a natural outdoor learning environment. This funding will go towards creating a beautiful outdoor space for the toddler classroom!
