Carlisle Montessori School


A Place where... Children Learn to Think.

Carlisle Montessori

Carlisle Montessori School located in Atlanta was founded in 2008 by Gina Ward, an AMI trained teacher and director with 26 years of experience in Montessori Education. This charming "Children's House" is located in the heart of Atlanta, in the Historic Neighborhood of Lindbergh Martin Manor. The success of the two schools is attributed to highly trained staff members, hundreds of students who have blossomed under their direction and word of mouth from satisfied parents.

We believe that if you provide your child with a Montessori Education Foundation in the most important first six years of life. Your child will have a strong sense of self, independence, community, leadership and acquire critical thinking skills while learning to read, write and learn arithmetic. 

Our goal is to closely follow Dr. Maria Montessori’s educational methods and philosophies in guiding and nurturing the "whole child." This means teaching them academically, emotionally and spiritually. We also make it our aim to provide a beautiful, safe and challenging environment that inspires independence, creativity, social consciousness, personal responsibility and a love for learning. We keep our classrooms intimate and strive daily for excellence both in our environment and in our instruction so parents can be sure the Montessori education their children receive is of the very highest quality.

What is Montessori ?


Dr. Maria Montessori 

Maria Montessori graduated from the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Rome in 1896. She was the first female physician in Italy. Her educational background also included Anthropology, Psychiatry and Biology. Montessori was very interested in children and their development. She observed how the young children could easily construct themselves from the environment provided to them. How the child  easily absorbed information and experiences. She as a scientist, created a learning method and designed special materials to meet the child's natural needs to adapt to and learn from their world.

In 1907 Maria Montessori opened "Casa Dei Bambini" in San Lorenzo, Italy for the  poor children ages 3 - 6. The children flourished and word of the  "Montessori Method" began to spread throughout the world. In 1929 Dr. Montessori founded Association Montessori International (AMI)  to insure integrity of the principles of the Montessori Method.
