A History of Cabot Montessori SchoolNine years in the making

In June of 2007, after nine years of working in Little Rock, owner and director Miss Vicky, saw a need for early education in her adopted hometown of Cabot (after all she had just delivered her third daughter!) Originally from Buckinghamshire, England (yes, she still has a cool accent!) Miss Vicky trained at what is now the Montessori Centre International. She met, and married, an officer in the U.S. Navy and from then on her Montessori experience was relocated to the States.

Wanting something more than just a daycare for her own kids, the search began for the perfect location. The ideal location had to have three things: a large outdoor space, easy access to the highway for commuting parents, and enough space inside to set up two classrooms. After two years of searching, the Cabot Montessori School house was discovered (and became available to rent!)

Located just off Highway 67/167 at Exit 16, the house at 4100 South 1st Street would be just the place to convert into a Montessori classroom. On close to two acres of land, the house provides loads of outdoor space (this requirement was super hard to find in town.) The living and dining rooms were converted into what is now the Primary classroom and the back rooms were converted into the Early Primary classroom. Now Miss Vicky has a school that looks and feels like home.

At the heart of everything, Cabot Montessori School has been a success over the last seven years because of the students who have attended and because of the families who gave those children the gift of a Montessori education.

Education is not what the teacher gives; education is a natural process spontaneously carried out by the human individual, and is acquired not by listening to words but by experiences upon the environment.
