Welcome to Cascade Summit Montessori School in West Linn, Oregon, where we provide authentic Montessori education for children ages eighteen months to six years. Additionally, we provide the best child care to the community.
At Cascade Summit Montessori School we have peaceful learning environments focused on using the Montessori Method to educate and help children develop into thoughtful and inquisitive global citizens. Here, we do more than simply teach; we work to stimulate the children’s curiosity, instruct them on important life skills, and let them learn through individualized social/emotional, academic, and practical life lessons.
At Cascade Summit Montessori School, our team works hard to guide the development of the whole child and look for ways to ensure our offerings create a foundation for future success. We're proud of our school gardens and teaching children the importance of being healthy through our Grow Fit program.
We’re committed to providing simple ways to keep you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. With live streaming video, you can view your child’s classroom from any device or computer. Plus, get real-time updates with our family communication app.
We closely follow recommendations from state and local authorities, to maintain a clean, safe, healthy environment.
