Monarch Montessori School

We are a nonprofit school grounded in Montessori pedagogy, accessible to families of all incomes, that places the needs of the children first. Located on the East Side of St. Paul, we serve children 33 months through six years of age. 

Music Specialist

We are beyond excited to announce our Music Program at Monarch! Theresa, a talented violist, ukulele player, and music teacher designs interactive lessons. Our biweekly musical experiences get children moving, singing, and playing instruments. Theresa also helps us learn the basics of musical composition and appreciate an array of genres.

"Music is a world within itself, with a language we all understand." -Stevie Wonder

Why Monarch?


A Warm Community As a small school, we have the flexibility to respond to the unique needs of families. We value building relationships and getting to know you and your child. Our kind, supportive community of families forges connections that extend beyond the school's walls.


Personalized Learning We offer individualized, hands-on instruction to preserve the love for learning and magic of discovery from qualified, experienced educators. We also co-teach, ensuring that every child receives the support that they need to thrive.


Education for the Whole Child In addition to mathematics, reading, and writing, we embed movement, nature, music, art, social-emotional learning, and practical life skills into the daily life of the classroom.


Resources Beyond the Classroom Families have access to an onsite toy library, monthly parent nights, and an onsite food shelf. We are partners in your parenting journey, and we are here to build you up and support you.


Values-Driven Organization As a nonprofit organization, we exist for the benefit of our community. When making decisions, we consider our values instead of profits. Our mission includes a commitment to quality, child-centered education, and accessibility.

"It’s hard to really do justice to just how incredible our son’s experience at Monarch Montessori has been. I toured many different schools, but when I walked into Monarch Montessori and met Ms. Julia and Ms. See and I could immediately tell that this place was different and really special.

My high energy son has just excelled at Monarch. He’s able to follow the classroom expectations and is so excited about learning! He’s learned to identify how he’s feeling and regulate his responses. He has formed so many wonderful friendships.

I cannot recommend Monarch enough! I wish every child got to experience learning and growing here. If you are looking for a place that will help your nurture your child’s social, emotional, and academic growth then Monarch is it."

-Theresa, Parent of Monarch student
