Hans Christian Andersen Montessori

At The Hans Christian Andersen Montessori School children learn to explore, question, and enjoy the wonder of learning. We encourage each child to discover their amazing and unique abilities.

We are an affiliated member of the American Montessori Society and licensed by the State of Connecticut. Our programs run four and five days per week, full and part time. We also have an extended-care morning program and lunch program available.

We accept children ages 2 years and 9 months through 6 years into our program.

The Hans Christian Andersen Montessori School is one of the oldest continuously running Montessori schools in the country. We opened during the great period of interest in the Montessori method of education during the 1960's.

The school is located in a historical building, which once served as the Bolton Public Library. This location helps us to serve the towns of Bolton, Vernon, Manchester, Tolland, Coventry, Andover, East Hartford, Hebron, Marlborough, Windsor, South Windsor, Stafford Springs, Hartford, and other surrounding communities.

Our Preschool and Kindergarten programs are open to children ages three (by December 31) through six. Registration opens to returning students and siblings during the month of January, and then opens to the general public mid February. New Student Application Forms are accepted throughout the year and are placed in the order they are received on a waiting list for the school year you request, provided your child meets the age criteria by the enrollment date you specify. Your place on HCAMS’ waiting list is not the sole criteria by which your child can be accepted to HCAMS. A child’s school readiness, as assessed by HCAMS Staff; the family’s willingness to participate in the school community through HCAMS’ Parent Guild; a Parent or Guardian’s commitment to their child’s education in a Montessori environment; and the age and gender distribution of the incoming class are all factors considered when HCAMS Staff considers your child for enrollment at the school.

Montessori's educational approach has changed the learning process throughout the world. There are approximately 22,000 Montessori schools worldwide. Montessori schools teach children from as early has birth to 18 years old when children become adults.

There are different levels of Montessori development. The schools we list provide different levels and practices of the Montessori educational system/approach. Call the phone number listed for more information and/or to set up an appointment to visit the school.
