Our Vision, Our Mission, Our passion
Cowles Montessori is pleased to offer a Montessori style of learning for students in the Des Moines area. At Cowles, we believe in the powers of the individual child, drawing upon his or her inner motivation to learn. Classrooms are set up in multi-age groupings where they learn from each other and because of each other. With their constant interaction the children learn to take responsibility for themselves and each other. In this child-centered community, parents play a critical role in their child’s education. We encourage and welcome you to be involved in school activities, our Cowles Montessori Parent Group, and your child’s daily learning. Parents are welcome to stop by anytime as we value your partnership in the education of students. We believe in the Montessori philosophy of guiding children’s natural curiosity and intrinsic motivation to learn and are committed to building on this to foster student achievement.
Cowles is closed to enrollment for 2013-2014. We have filled all classrooms through returning students, siblings of returning students, and from our waiting list. If there are any additional openings as a result of changes to family circumstances the openings will be filled from the current waiting list and you will be notified by Nancy.
