Welcome to International Montessori Schools at Royersford
Choosing the right school for your child can be an overwhelming task. But we are here to help! At International Montessori Schools, we pride ourselves on fostering productive, harmonious communities where children are free to learn and discover at their own pace. Our faithful implementation of the Montessori philosophy ensures that they grow holistically, developing valuable skills on various social and intellectual levels.
Each of our five IMSchools locations offers a stimulating, child-centered environment that is fine-tuned to optimize the social, emotional, and cognitive growth of your child. Our teachers are highly trained individuals with backgrounds as diverse as those of our students; from Peru to Nepal, from China to Columbia, many cultures meet in our classrooms. Their role is to guide children in the classroom, patiently helping them find their own solutions rather than feeding them answers. Children grow confident and independent as they are given the time and space to choose their own work, collaborate, and solve problems. In addition to carefully selecting and preparing materials to aid your child’s physical, emotional and academic progress, our teachers are also committed to fostering a warm and inviting environment for your child to grow and develop. Each of our classroom communities is founded on the principle of respect—for oneself, for each other, and for the environment. It is not uncommon to find young children sweeping up messes, preparing and sharing snacks, or helping each other in meaningful work. As the children learn and develop their personal skills, they grow both as individuals and as a community.
At IMSchools, we want to give your child a chance to discover him/herself and the world around him/her. From butterfly gardens and vegetable patches to classroom pets and mud kitchens, IMSchools offer interesting and enjoyable ways for your child to engage with nature and learn about the interconnectedness of life in its many forms. Music, art, and stories from around the globe also enrich the classroom experience and help your child develop as a global citizen. We believe that each member—teacher, parent, and student—contributes something unique and beautiful to the colorful tapestry that is the IMSchools community and we hope you will come share, learn, and explore with us!
Thank you for your interest in IMSchools. We hope you are as excited about the possibilities for your child as we are! Please come visit us at any one of our five schools in Royersford, PA. We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you into our growing community of teachers, families and friends.
International Montessori Royersford is an incredible place, which has enhanced the development of our child beyond our expectations. The care and attention to each student's emotional and educational needs are evident on a daily basis. The staff made the transition into a new school seamless for our family and we're so thankful to be a part of the IM community.
My daughter has been attending International Montessori of Royersford for about a year. I am very happy with the school. I have seen a good amount of growth in my daughter since she has been attending. I really trust and like the teachers, they all have a very soft touch with the children. My daughter had to transition from the infant room to the pre-primary room and the teachers and school are working well with her and provide updates on her development in her new room. I highly recommend the school.
This is not a daycare! The school and materials are new and top quality. The staff at this school are beyond amazing. I enrolled both my 3 yr old and 12 month old sons when the school first opened. My husband and I couldn't be happier with the care for our children. All the teachers have been very calm, supportive, and engaging. My previous experience with other Montessori schools and daycares has been that teachers didn't connect with the children consistently, instead they spend the day shuffling kids around the classroom throughout the day. That was not our experience at IMS Royersford. There was not a time when we picked our children up and the teacher/guide was not fully engaged. I don't believe this was just because of the small classroom size. These teachers/guide truly love exploring and engaging with their students. The difference was huge with my 3 now 4 year old. He advanced tremendously in such a short period of time. Reading, geography, and adding 3-digit numbers before his 4 birthday. My now 19 month old is extremely curious, independent, and showing significant developmental advancement. By far, the best decision we have made as parents!
