FIFTY YEARS OF EXCELLENCE. Montessori arrived in Midland in 1970 when a group of interested parents formed the Saginaw Valley Montessori Association. The name was later changed to Midland Montessori School, Inc., to better reflect the commitment to the community. The school opened in 1971 in rented facilities and operated in several rented locations before finding a place of it’s own.

MUCH HAS CHANGED OVER THE LAST 50 YEARS and our school now provides one of the most outstanding facilities dedicated to early childhood education in the Midland area. With over 9,000 square feet, Midland Montessori School offers a total of seven classrooms, two of which include a child-accessible kitchen, a large indoor gym and even a library! In addition, we have multiple outdoor playground structures, a fenced-in  grass area and a bike path. Ample amounts of parking is available.

THE MISSION OF MIDLAND MONTESSORI SCHOOL is to provide an environment based on real life experiences and reflections which encourage children to develop Respect, Responsibility and Resourcefulness.

OUR HIGHLY EDUCATED AND MONTESSORI CERTIFIED TEACHERS are the pride of our school and provide a loving and child-centered education based on the philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori. Most of our teachers have been with the school for over ten years and provide continuity in your child’s education.

MIDLAND MONTESSORI SCHOOL ACCOMMODATES children from the age of six weeks up to kindergarten. We are proud of our diverse student body and our non-discriminating environment. Midland Montessori School is open to all children regardless of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, handicap or disability.Please feel free to call or email to schedule a tour. We still have spots available and are accepting applications.

“The goal of Early Childhood Education should be to activate the child’s own natural desire to learn”
Maria Montessori

OUR SCHOOL IS AFFILIATED with the Michigan Montessori Society and is a full member of the American Montessori Society. We are fully licensed by the state of Michigan. We are a non-profit organization, with parent volunteers elected to be our board of directors who collaborate with the school’s administration to oversee MMS.

The Montessori Classroom
The Montessori classroom is a unique learning environment that is designed to foster independence, creativity, and a love of learning in children. The Montessori classroom is carefully prepared to encourage exploration and discovery, and it is filled with a wide range of materials and activities that are designed to meet the needs of each individual child.
The Montessori classroom is organized into different curriculum areas, including Practical Life, Sensorial, Mathematics, Language, Science, and Cultural Studies. Each area is designed to promote specific learning objectives, and the materials within each area are carefully chosen to facilitate independent learning and exploration.
In the Montessori classroom, children are encouraged to work independently and at their own pace. The teacher serves as a guide and facilitator, rather than a traditional instructor, and children are given the freedom to choose their own work and to explore their own interests.
The Montessori classroom is also designed to foster a sense of community and collaboration. Children of different ages work together in the same classroom, and older children are encouraged to mentor and support younger children. This approach promotes a sense of social responsibility and empathy, as well as a deep respect for others.
The Montessori classroom is typically filled with natural materials, including wood, glass, and metal. These materials are designed to engage children’s senses and to promote a connection with the natural world. The classroom is also carefully organized and aesthetically pleasing, with each material and activity carefully placed on shelves or in designated areas.
Overall, the Montessori classroom is a unique and engaging learning environment that is designed to promote independence, creativity, and a love of learning in children. By providing a stimulating and supportive environment, children are able to develop a deep understanding and appreciation of the world around them.

Montessori has a head start on STEM/STEAM Philosophy.
Have you heard of STEM?  This buzzword is all about integrating Science, Technology, Engineering, Math – and even Art (STEAM) into the classrooms. What does this mean for Montessorians?
The Montessori Method of education, developed by Dr. Maria Montessori, is a child-centered educational approach based on scientific observations of children from birth to adulthood. Dr. Montessori’s Method has been time tested, with over 100 years of success in diverse cultures throughout the world.
It is a view of the child as one who is naturally eager for knowledge and capable of initiating learning in a supportive, thoughtfully prepared learning environment. It is an approach that values independence and the development of the whole child—physical, social, emotional, and cognitive.
There is currently a movement underway to train and retrain 100,000 STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) teachers. Across the country there are new standards for STEM subjects, with educators being charged to be creative and engaging rather than just teaching from a textbook.
Montessori teachers have a jump start on their conventional counterparts. Since student engagement is at the forefront of the Montessori classroom, we are already actively engaging students in hands-on learning.  Beginning in the Montessori Infant, Toddler and Preschool environments, students learn the fundamental rules of math and science through the discovery of natural laws through manipulation of didactic materials and problem-solving with peers. The work engages the senses and insures the internalization of concepts, not just memorization of disjointed facts and figures.

The current STEM movement is calling for innovation, collaboration, and hands-on learning and problem solving. To the Montessori community, this is nothing new. This is what we’ve been doing all along.  Hands-on is seen as necessary for STEM success. And hands-on as the way to educational success is no news for Montessori practitioners.
It is likely that Montessori preschool teachers are actually doing more STEM based activities in their classrooms, and have been doing so for years!
Was it that Dr. Montessori’s background as a medical doctor helped her see that Science belongs in preschool, when other educators didn’t? Activities like Land/Air/ and Water, expansive work with the decimal system and other mathematics, as well as countless additional Montessori core materials  are powerful STEM activities already, in common use in Montessori classrooms and certainly at MMS!

winter radio headset from Midland

winter radio headset! Sounds interesting, doesn’t it? Here, he refuses, and there is such a thing on the market. These headphones with a microphone from Midland came across to me quite by accident and, given the very symbolic cost, I decided to take them for a test and review.

I don’t usually test accessories, but I really liked the idea and decided to make an exception.


The headset is delivered in such a blister.

On the side is the name SubZero, HD Stereo Ear Warmers, which means high-quality stereo ear warmers.

Open the box and find the headphones themselves inside.

By the way, these are not classic headphones with a headband, but a model that is worn on the back of the head, that is, the arc connecting the headphones themselves is not located on top, but on the back of your head. Which is quite comfortable, and does not interfere with wearing a hat.

The material covering the speakers is like faux fur, quite pleasant to the touch and really warm. This headset also performs its second function. Wearing these headphones personally did not cause any negative emotions in me, everything is very convenient.

The headband allows you to adjust the distance between the headphones themselves and the size can be chosen for almost any head.

The right fur pocket hides the connector for connecting cables.

These headphones can be used not only to listen to music, but also to work with radio stations. For this, two cables are included. On the left is a cable for connecting a radio station, on the right is for connecting a phone or mp3 player.

Cable for telephone and mp3 player

Cable for radio connection. A little more about him, we have a magazine about communication.

The cable for connecting to the radio has a microphone with a PTT. All this device with a clip can be fixed on clothing.

There is also a VOX / PTT switch that switches the headset from PTT to hands-free mode, the transmission will be activated by your voice, unless of course the radio station with which you will use this headset supports this function.

There is, indeed, an unpleasant moment. In fact, I was never able to get this headset to work with several VHF radios.
