73 Stanwood Street: Our new school building


Montessori Community School of RI is now housed in our new school on the South Side of Providence! Two buildings joined together for toddlers and preschoolers to grow and learn. A beautiful brick school house and an industrial garage space are now one, in order to have a stunning and vibrant new learning environment for all of our programs.

(The design and build of the new school was done by, from in form llc, a design/build architectural studio located in Providence, Rhode Island.)

      Montessori Community School of RI includes:

  • Two spacious sunlit classrooms with large glass windows

  • An outdoor classroom, accessible to students throughout the day

  • A beautiful community space for gatherings and events

  • A modern, open kitchen and living room for community use

  • A rooftop garden for farm education and community use

In keeping with the values and mission of our smaller program on Dexter St, Montessori Community School of RI on Stanwood St., will have child centered classrooms, excellent and dedicated employees, and creative spaces for freedom of movement and joyful learning.

Thanks to our loyal donors we were able to raise the funds necessary to complete the project on time. Our goal is to complete Phase two of the project in two years, adding on several new classrooms, the roof top garden, an art and music studio and a beautiful library and parent lounge. The successful development of Phase 2, will help us fulfill our mission of being the only Montessori school on the South Side of Providence, offering a high quality start to school,  and being accessible to all families regardless of economic status. If you would like to contribute and make it possible for more children in Providence to have a first class Montessori education please click here!
