Sweetwater Montessori School in New Bern, North Carolina is dedicated to being the best preschool and kindergarten in the area by enabling the full potential of your child to emerge while fostering:

  • An intrinsic love of learning
  • Self-sufficiency
  • Responsibility
  • Respect for others
  • ... all within a safe and nurturing environment

    With over 20 years of Montessori teaching experience and credentialed by the American Montessori Society, we offer a genuine Montessori learning experience for your child.  Call us to find out why this matters!

    "There are many who hold, as I do, that the most important period of life is not the age of university studies, but the first one, the period from birth to the age of six. For that is the time when a man's intelligence itself, his greatest implement, is being formed."

    - Maria Montessori

    We invite you to come and explore our Web site. Inside you will find not only more about Sweetwater Montessori School, our Director, Mariann Seaman and our Code of Ethics, but also what we hope you will find to be useful information on the Montessori Method, a recommended Montessori reading list potentially useful to parents of preschool and kindergarten aged children, and through some external links that we think do a good job of illustrating Montessori preschool activities in text and video. We have also included a section on Dr. Maria Montessori's history (including an entire page dedicated to Dr. Maria Montessori quotes), a page with some ideas for things to do with your children in the New Bern area, and more. We will be adding still more content as time goes on, and your suggestions for site improvement are welcome. But please be patient because as always, the children come first!
