Living Montessori: The Parent Perspective

In just over 3 minutes, you will see and hear from parents about how great Montessori education is for all children.

Parents tell you, in their own words, what makes Montessori education special. Go “beyond 2+2″ and see the difference that Montessori can make in your child’s life.

Summer Camp 2014
Join us for a summer of FUN


Great things happen at Go Like the Wind Montessori School because of our belief that each child has an innate drive to learn through experience. We are an authentic Ann Arbor Montessori school dedicated to providing quality education and childcare for infants, toddlers, preschool, elementary, and middle school students. We serve the communities of Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti, Plymouth, Canton, and the surrounding region.

Our school is nestled on a forty-acre campus that includes woodlands and open meadows, which we utilize in our learning. We celebrate a diverse cultural school community and provide lessons in all forms of diversity, which strengthen and enrich our overall Go Like the Wind Montessori family.

Go Like The Wind Montessori offers financial aid to qualified students. The goal of our financial aid program is to ensure that admitted students have the opportunity to attend GLTW regardless of financial circumstances.

Join us and find out for yourself why great things happen at Go Like the Wind Montessori!
