Montessori Academy at Belmont Greene

Montessori Academy at Belmont Greene

At MAB, we believe in preparing a child for life...

The Montessori Academy at Belmont Greene, known to our parents as “MAB” was founded by Beth and Bart Theriot (mother and son) in 2001. We remain the sole owners of the Academy and are devoted to maintaining an authentic Montessori environment for all of our students. We are a full member school of the American Montessori Society (AMS) offering a true Montessori environment to children age 10 weeks through 10 years. Beth and Bart also own and operate the Northern Virginia Montessori Institute, located on MAB’s campus, which is the only AMS affiliated Montessori early childhood teacher education program in Northern Virginia. MAB is located just off Belmont Ridge Rd. with easy access to Ashburn, Leesburg, as well as surrounding communities via The Greenway and Route 7. Belmont Greene is the first Traditional Neighborhood Development in Loudoun County, designed for mixed generational neighborhoods. It incorporates small parks and village shops all connected by footpaths and sidewalks and is an ideal location for a school which utilizes hands-on learning for subjects such as science and nature. Our facility was specifically designed by Beth Theriot using her 30 years of Montessori teaching experience. The school building is over 15,000 square feet of open, bright and spacious area and includes a gymnasium, 6 primary classrooms, 3 infant toddler rooms and an elementary wing. Our 3 acre wooded grounds offer two playgrounds, garden boxes and a nature trail, maintained by our elementary students.

“One test of the correctness of educational procedure is the happiness of the child.” — Maria Montessori

Have a Montessori-inspired Fathers' Day. Have some outdoor fun. Make a special craft that Dad can treasure. Get everyone involved in making the family meal. From everyone at the Montessori Academy of Belmont Greene, we wish you a memorable and wonderful Father's Day.

Through planned and unplanned social interactions as well as modeling by the teachers, children learn lessons of grace and courtesy. They are given the freedom to do right and the understanding of why.

We empower our students with independence, compassion and a sense of purpose, because these are the attributes they need when they walk out the door. Come visit and see what makes us different. Call us at (703) 270-0682 to schedue a visit.

Dr. Montessori observed that unnecessary help to a child is a hindrance. In the Montessori environment, teachers look to step back as often as they step forward. Indeed, a goal of the Montessori teacher is that the child is working as if the teacher is not in the room.

Our 2019 Summer Camp classes are taught by our specially trained Montessori teachers. The schedule is flexible, allowing parents to select classes for the entire Summer or specific weeks in advance.

Children are born with an innate love of learning and a desire to refine their skills. Montessori teachers are specially trained to nurture this love of learning to support the child’s effort.

"The greatest sign of success for a teacher... is to be able to say, 'The children are now working as if I did not exist'." — Maria Montessori

Individualization, freedom and a hands-on approach is what makes the Montessori education a unique experience. Call us today at 703-270-0682 to schedule your tour of MAB!

[05/10/19]   The teachers were the beneficiaries of your wonderful efforts this week, but perhaps the best part was seeing and hearing all of the new friendships and the sense of togetherness within our little parent community. We are all a part of something bigger than any one of us and that has never been more apparent than the last few days. We are so grateful to share in this journey with you. Thank you MAB Parents and FAN for an amazing week!

[05/08/19]   It's Teacher Appreciation Week. A time to recognize one of the most important groups of people in the world.
Thank you to all of the MAB faculty for giving all your love to each and every child and somehow having enough to share with your families when you get home. Thank you for the late and sleepless nights where you've done what was needed whether you were asked to or not. Thank you for perservering through the challenging moments that only teachers know. Thank you for the incredible strength and devotion that brings you back to us every morning with a smile and a hug for every student (and parent). The work you do is invaluable, noble and absolutely crucial to the betterment of our world. We need it now, more than ever.

[04/01/19]   Thank you to everyone that came out to Atomic Trampoline on Friday. We loved seeing all the smiling faces as they enjoyed time with their friends outside of school. Our school made $381.00!!!! Thanks for all the support.

Children are born with an innate love of learning and a desire to refine their skills. There is a flame burning within each child which pushes him or her ever-forward to build the adult he or she will one day become.

Do you want to help support the students, and teachers of MAB? Become an MAB FAN today! https://mabmontessori.com/mab-fan/

Your child knows a lot about MAB Kindergarten. Each Kindergarten student in the primary classroom is a leader. They have earned the respect and friendship of the younger students, who know with great certainty that they too will lead their class one day. You, on the other hand, might not be as well-informed. Whether your child is ready for Kindergarten next year or several years from now, we think it is never too early to peek behind the MAB Kindergarten curtain.

We would like to invite all MAB parents to join us on Tuesday, March 12th at 5:00PM for A Closer Look at MAB Kindergarten.
