“Education is a natural process spontaneously carried out by the human individual, and is acquired not by listening to words but by experiences upon the environment.” - Dr. Maria Montessori
Welcome to The Del Ray Montessori School, a non-profit Montessori School located in the quaint Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria, Virginia! Established in 2011 by educators and parents with a deep appreciation of Maria Montessori’s educational method, we are located in the Del Ray United Methodist Church, just off Mt. Vernon Avenue in the heart of Del Ray. Our goal is to create a rich, stimulating school environment that will unite a community of students, families, and staff to support the optimum development of the child and foster a life-long love of learning.
