newport montessori
After 15 years of running Newport Montessori, in the spring of 2014,  I decided to change paths.  I’m excited to announce that St. Michael’s Country Day School has acquired Newport Montessori and I will be starting there this fall as a resource teacher in the Early Childhood program.  
St. Michael’s Country Day School offers an amazing vibrant child-centered program and employs many of the Montessori manipulatives and philosophies.  SMCDS offers an environment I love and admire: where students learn in a caring community with 76 years of excellence in providing ethical and educational programming.  It was clear to me that SMCDS is the school in Newport where I feel most closely aligned and where I can bring my expertise and energy into a dynamic school community.  
If you came to this site looking for a Montessori program I HIGHLY recommend that you reach out to Stephen Bennhoff, the Director of Admissions at St. Michael’s Country Day School. or on the phone at 401-849-5970 (ext 302)  He will be excited to learn more about your child and your hopes and dreams for him or her.  I have also included his contact information on the Admissions page link.
