Ramalynn Academy's Montessori Primary School initiates its educational journey at age 3, presenting a distinctive approach that distinguishes it among local elementary schools and preschools in Bloomington and the surrounding areas. Our team of accredited Montessori teachers and dedicated assistants cultivates a nurturing environment to support each child's individualized exploration and learning.

Our private school Montessori-inspired early education-based curriculum provides a unique blend of individualized learning and academic rigor. Our child-centered approach, complemented by a personalized learning path for every student, aligns with the evolving landscape of modern education, especially at the preschool level.

Montessori Classroom Layout

The Montessori classroom layout is simple and thoughtful. It is organized with designated learning areas that focus on each subject, such as sensorial, math, geography, etc. Montessori school materials used in the classroom are child-sized and accessible to the students. 

Montessori Primary Curriculum

Montessori preschool and kindergarten curriculum focuses on these 5 subject areas. 

Outdoor & Physical Activity

We feel strongly that children need to explore and enjoy nature. Our students have recess everyday! We believe it’s an important time for students to run, play, and enjoy the outdoors.

Whole Child Learning

The beauty of Montessori is that the child can always be challenged at any age. They work to their individual level, not limited by low standards set for their age.  This is the time when your child is a sponge. They should be introduced to purposeful learning in a calm and loving environment, where respect and kindness are key!
