Terry's Montessori School - History

Terry’s Montessori School, Inc. was established in 1972 in Forest Park, Ohio.  We started in our home and a year later we moved to the historical community of Wyoming, Ohio.  We have resided in this community since 1973.  We began with a full day Montessori home care program for children 2 years through 6 years of age at our 209 Wyoming Avenue location.  Today, our Wyoming school is home to our pre-K and kindergarten students.  As word of our program spread and our enrollment increased, we needed additional space, and in 1988 we purchased an older home 2 blocks away at 425 Crescent Avenue. This school now houses children from 2 1/2 to 4 years of age.  In 1991, the building next door (435 Crescent) became available and we began our new venture in creating a Montessori infant/toddler program.   We weren’t quite done growing!  Our infant waiting list showed us there was a greater need for more cribs, so in 1993 we purchased 415 Poplar which gave us 3 more openings – totaling 14.  In need of additional office space and a conference center, we acquired an office building in 2003 to include our administrative needs and to add an enrichment program for our toddler program.
