  • Nokomis Montessori proudly serves students in grades PreK-5 on the East Side of St. Paul.
  • Our school is based on the Montessori method. Students learn at their own pace in multi-grade classrooms, independently cultivating their interests and natural abilities.
  • Teachers help students choose their work in carefully prepared environments; students use hands-on materials to practice and understand skills and concepts.
  • Teachers are Montessori-certified and use the Montessori philosophy to guide instruction.
  • Nokomis Montessori has an active PTO that provides many opportunities for families to be involved each year.
  • Community building activities include the PTO fall festival, Hmong New Year, PTO family craft night and fun fair.

We offer:

  • PreK (full day)
  • Discovery Club (fee-based, off-site)
