Our History:

KMS was founded in 1971 by a trained, experienced Montessori teacher, Leigh Jewell, and parents who were enthusiastic and committed to the goal of offering quality Montessori learning experiences to their children. KMS was formerly (from 1964) a part of the North Suburban Montessori until that school split into smaller units in 1971 to facilitate its goal to be parent-directed. The school was incorporated as a nonprofit corporation with a volunteer board of directors.


Our Mission: 
It is the Mission of Kinderhaus Montessori School to provide an enriched, inclusive environment and education for our children—three through six years of age—and to give them the opportunity to develop to their fullest potential psychologically, socially, physically, and intellectually.


We are licensed by the State of Minnesota and are full members of the American Montessori Society.
Get involved!
Kinderhaus Montessori School, commonly referred to as KMS, is a private, non-profit school administered by both a parent-run board and a Head of School.
We believe parental involvement teaches children that school is both important and valuable. Parental involvement improves your child's education, as well as keeps our tuition low. We rely on parents to support the school by donating a portion of their time and talents. Parents can volunteer for a variety of functions, from serving on the parent board to making photocopies or chaperoning on field trips.
The classroom is led by an AMS certified teacher.
