Oak Hill Montessori is a small preschool located in Scarborough Maine. We are licensed for 12 children and two teachers with Montessori training. We offer a homey, nurturing environment for your child's first school experience. Our Montessori classroom provides a stimulating environment for even the youngest learner.
'We enrolled our son, Jackson in Caroline's Montessori program when he was three years old. It was a wonderful experience. The kids were always happy and enjoying themselves, often at their own pace and direction, but always under the watchful and caring eye of Caroline. We saw our son learn from the older children when he first started going to school and in his second year we watched him guide the younger children. Jackson emerged from preschool as a well-balanced, confident and articulate five year old that was ready to take on the challenges in elementary school. Beyond that, every interaction we have had with Caroline has been wonderful, she is so warm and friendly and truly enjoys working with the children. We have always felt confident knowing we are leaving our son in a safe and stimulating environment. We are excited to witness the Montessori Method all over again with our youngest child, Emma, who will be enrolled at Oak Hill Montessori soon.'

'Over the past two years my daughter has been attending the Montessori preschool with Caroline, and I have been pleased to see her develop her love of learning in a safe and stimulating environment, true to the Montessori philosophy. What my daughter has been learning, socially and academically through music, art, nature, creative play and practical life skills, transcends into "real life" actions and choices. Caroline has created a wonderfully calm, organised and effective program that has focused on my child as an individual, nurturing her unique characteristics and abilities, while helping her to develop the important skills that build self-reliance and responsibility when problem solving and working with others. Caroline's multi-age program has allowed my daughter the joy of learning from her peers, as well as modelling for and helping others in her class. I have enjoyed working with Caroline over the past two years and belive her preschool has been a fun and engaging environment for my daughter to grow and thrive in.'
