Dynamite Montessori is a three-tiered Arizona private school serving Cave Creek, Carefree, North Phoenix and North Scottsdale. Our preschool program includes toddlers ages 18 months – 3 years and primary children ages 3 – 6. Our elementary school serves students through age 12.

The primary children actively engage in the construction of their personalities, while the elementary children engage in group work and learn how to execute tasks cooperatively.

In the primary, we offer the “keys to the world.” In the elementary we offer the “keys to the universe,” and set the child free to explore. We are trained to observe the “sensitive periods” for the acquisition of mathematical concepts, culture, and language in the younger years, and to deliver “cosmic lessons” that ignite the imagination of the older children and inspire research.

We are a recognized AMI (Association Montessori Internationale) School and have been since 2000. AMI was established in 1929 by Dr. Maria Montessori to maintain, propagate and further her ideas and principals for the full development of the human being. AMI, with headquarters in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, is the oldest recognized authority on Montessori education worldwide.

Our approach to 2nd language learning is a holistic one. This approach completely takes advantage of the young child’s absorbent mind and the sensitive period for grammar of the 7 year old. Children learn Spanish in its entirety, i.e. syntax, accent, vocabulary from native speakers in each class. Older children receive formal writing and reading lessons. Our summer Spanish immersion program is open to all elementary and alumni students and to the general public. Beginners welcome!

In addition to the Montessori curriculum offered, we also educate the body to move gracefully, purposefully, skillfully and confidently. Sports are offered as an option to the primary children, and are a part of our weekly work in the elementary.

As a staff, we are committed to excellence, and to creating the best learning environment for each child. Please call and schedule a tour to see for yourself!
