School Information
We have one part-time classroom and three full day classrooms. Each classroom is staffed with two full time teachers witha maximum of 19 children.  We provide preschool  instruction to students between the ages of 3 to 6 years old.

Missouri Valley Montessori School of Bismarck, North Dakota was started in 1977 by a group of parents who wanted a more educational, loving environment for their children. Parents provided the help necessary to get the school running by making equipment, varnishing chairs and tables, implementing fundraising projects, and contacting service organizations for donations. After over 30 years of operation, parents continue to play a vital role in the functions of Missouri Valley Montessori.

Licensing and Accreditation
Missouri Valley Montessori is a non-profit preschool  that serves children ages 3 to 6 years old. The school holds dual licensing from Burleigh County for preschool and daycare, and is approved through the Department of Public Instruction for kindergarten. The school is run by a Director, and is overseen by a Board of Directors, which consists of parents who have a desire to be involved in the present and future course of the school.
