Children's Magnet Montessori school in Forest Hill.

Forest Hill

Our Forest Hill location offers Montessori daycare, preschool, kindergarten, and elementary programs.

Children’s Manor Montessori School – Forest Hill campus is conveniently located on Klein Plaza Drive off Rock Spring Rd (Route 24), minutes from Route 23 and Route 1. Forest Hill offers seven open-concept classrooms, a certified teaching staff, a library, a large playground for Infant and Toddlers, Preschool, Kindergarten & Elementary students, and morning and afternoon snacks!

CMMS – Forest Hill is more than just a daycare & preschool.  Unlike traditional daycares, all our classrooms include quality Montessori materials and an engaging, hands-on learning environment set up to foster each student’s development to their full potential. In addition to daily classroom instruction, students receive enrichment in STEM, Spanish, Music, Yoga, Art, Computer Science, and Library.  Our Montessori School in Forest Hill focuses on the development of the whole child.  Therefore, we offer Montessori Infant care, preschool, Kindergarten, and First Grade Elementary programs that balance the social/emotional, cognitive, physical, and academic development of children.
