We offer authentic Montessori education enhanced by specialists in music, art, home economics, STEM and physical education for children from 3 to 12 years old.  We also provide Orton-Gillingham (OG) based tutoring for children who have difficulty with reading, spelling, and writing. Charleston Montessori is a member of the International Montessori Council (IMC).
