Who We Are

Smockville Montessori is a non-profit preschool and kindergarten located in beautiful Old Town Sherwood. We are a member of the Oregon Montessori Association and the Sherwood Chamber of Commerce. We offer a small class environment to enable our teachers the ability to give your child more individual attention and care. Our location gives us easy access to our parks and city library for weekly outings.

Our Philosophy

Smockville Montessori follows the principles developed by Dr. Maria Montessori (1870-1952), an Italian physician, educator and humanitarian. Dr. Montessori believed children could learn free from bias if the environment was lovingly prepared with the needs of the child clearly understood.  Our teachers strive to prepare a warm, nurturing environment for each child to grow and learn at their own pace.
