Channel met with the founder and head of Northcrest Montessori to discuss plans for opening a Montessori school in Clarksville, Maryland; the school was to become the first of its kind in the Howard County area. The plan was to position Northcrest Montessori as a school that offers a quality Montessori education, five days a week, to children 18 months to six years of age.
Northcrest Montessori officially opened its doors with a staff of seven teachers and over 30 students. Parents continue to schedule information sessions and send in applications for their children on a weekly basis. The school has a waitlist for its toddler classroom and plans are in motion to open a second Toddler classroom in 2018.
