Over 70 Years Serving Children!

“To assist a child we must provide him with an environment which will enable him to develop freely.” ~Maria Montessori

Children’s Own School was founded in 1942 by Dorothy Sprague Gove as a small private pre-school for children between the ages of 2.5 and 6 years based on the Montessori principles of education. It was incorporated in 1947 and it is the oldest Montessori school in New England. 


Children’s Own School occupies the former Russell Farm at 86 Main Street, and the property includes an historic victorian farmhouse with new multi-level addition which houses a library and auditorium.
