About the Provider

Description: Welcome to Full Circle Montessori School! With four locations in Arlington, Virginia, F.C.M.S. is a Toddler level (ages 15 to 36 months), Primary level (ages 2 1/2 - 6), and Elementary level (ages 6 - 12) Montessori school that follows Dr. Maria Montessori’s ideas as upheld through the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI).

At F.C.M.S. we embrace what is at the heart of the Montessori philosophy: following the child and aiding him with the preparation for real life. As educators and human development experts, we support children as they follow their natural curiosities and inclinations to find their own interests, weaknesses and strengths. Children thrive when given independence (accompanied by clear, consistent boundaries) while engaging in purposeful work (don't we all?). The social and intellectual confidence - the opportunity to practice and prepare for real life - developed at Full Circle Montessori School will serve them throughout their lives.

This school has a great teacher! My daughter loves this school and we look forward to sending her here as long as we can :-) They keep true to the montessori learning style. This school does not allow kids to wear clothes that are distracting, such as clothes with advertisements (i.e. Disney etc). This school does not provide lunch. This school does not allow crackers, gogurt or anything unhealthy. With that said this school is great :-)
