OCMS students, staff, alumni and community members of all ages are invited to join us on Saturday, September 9, 2017 from 10am to 12pm for a very special dedication and ribbon-cutting ceremony, celebrating the incredible enhancements to our outdoor campus achieved through our 2016 Stronger Together Project. Celebrate with us as we unveil our new Childrens House playground, organic gardens, sport court, shaded picnic/learning area, and our very special OCMS Outdoor Classroom (honoring OCMS teacher, Tracy Stillman, and her 43 years of service)! This event is free and open to the public.
On Wednesday, June 7, 2017, OCMS Elementary students and their parents joined OCMS Organic Gardening teacher, Jon Belber of Holly Hill Farm, for a 5-course, organic, vegetarian meal at The Corner Stop Eatery in Cohasset, MA. Each family-style dish on the menu highlighted the organic ingredients grown and harvested in our very own OCMS organic gardens.
The OCMS Organic Gardening program, under the direction of Jon Belber and his team from Holly Hill Farm, is featured in the April edition of South Shore Living magazine. The editorial article highlights our commitment to providing students the opportunity to learn and grow "outside the books".
At Old Colony Montessori School, science and scientific experimentation are a integral part of the Elementary curriculum. As the traditional Montessori multi-age model so effortlessly allows, this then organically trickles down to the younger students as they are invited to join in on the wonder and awe of watching science come to life through the hands of children they admire, interact with, and observe on a regular basis.
Old Colony Montessori School has been the premier early-education provider on the south shore for over 50 years. A Montessori education sets the foundation for a child’s entire educational experience, promoting positive and well-rounded social, emotional and educational development.

Old Colony Montessori School is the oldest Montessori institution south of Boston. Founded by a group of parents in 1963, OCMS was incorporated as a non-profit educational organization under the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
