Nido Program 

The most important period of life is not the age of university studies, but the first one, the period from birth to the age of six. For that is the time when man’s intelligence itself, his greatest implement, is being formed. But not only his intelligence; the full totality of his psychic powers.
— Maria Montessori

To enroll in the Nido Program your child must be at least 6 weeks of age. Additionally, you must be an MSM parent with other children in either the Casa or Bambini program.

MSM has both morning (8:30 AM - 11:00 AM) and full-day (8:30 AM - 3:15 PM) programs from Monday through Friday. Additionally, there is extra before school and after school care available.


We are proud to introduce our newest class, Nido, a place for our youngest students. The Nido room will serve children from 6 weeks of age to 1.5 years and is exclusively available to our current MSM families. Nido is the Italian word for nest and that is exactly what this class will become, a nest for our smallest children to grow and develop according to Maria Montessori’s principles.
