Founded in 2016, Steamboat Montessori (formerly Mountain Village Montessori) is Northwest Colorado’s only Montessori educational institution. For over a century, Montessori-based education has excelled at meeting the needs of the whole child, and fostering a lifelong love of learning.


We offer a private pre-school program for ages 3-5, and a public charter school serving Kindergarten through 5th grade students.  Steamboat Montessori was recognized as a school of distinction by the Charter School Institute for the 2019-20 academic year, and is among the top performing schools in the state.

Our COVID-19 Safety Protocol

Steamboat Montessori offers a free COVID-19 testing clinic every Thursday, for students and their families.
Tests are a mid-nasal PCR test. Tests are performed by a volunteer nurse; you may also watch this video and perform the test yourself. If you have had a close contact with a positive case OR are experiencing symptoms, you are encouraged to get tested. Registration is required for all testing (no walk ups, please).

Steamboat Montessori follows local, state, and federal recommendations regarding travel and quarantine. In general, please avoid unnecessary travel. If your child has traveled outside the state, we ask that you notify the School, and please know that you may be required to keep your child home for 14 days and/or get tested before returning to school. If anyone in your child’s household has traveled outside the state and has tested positive for COVID-19, you may also be asked to keep your child at home for 14 days or get tested. In any scenario where a student must stay home to quarantine, they will participate in our distance learning.
