Our History

Founded over forty years ago by Mrs. Rosemary Simpson, the Dover Montessori Country Day School (DMCDS) now Dover Montessori Country Day Academy (DMCDA) is an A.M.I. accredited institute and has had the distinct privilege of serving thousands of Dover and Kent County families over the years.

Following in her mother’s footsteps and having a passion for teaching, her daughter, Margaret “Peg” A. Kling bought the business from her, continuing the family business. The school is licensed for daycare and employs the Association Montessori Internationale method of instruction.
