Convenient Location Near DAFB

Welcome to the Dover AFB community! As a new parent with young children you have a few options for entrusting the care, well being and education of your child in Dover, Delaware. Whether you are active-duty or a mobilized reservist, civilian employee or contractor, we welcome you to Dover and thank you for your service to our nation.

Nothing is more important as a parent, working parent and most especially military parent than choosing where we drop off our children, part-time or all day, for weeks on end. While its convenient to drop off our children with our neighbors, the teenager across the street or at the Dover AFB Child Development Center, which are all wonderful choices, consider the Montessori education benefits. At Dover Montessori Country Day Academy, we have a focus on 2-6 year old’s and prepare them academically for the rigors of life.

We have a very long history–43 years and counting–for serving military parents stationed at Dover AFB, and the local Dover and surrounding community. We take great pride in who we employ, who our visiting teachers will be, who we invite to speak to our students and the many field trips we will take to expand our students thinking, spark creativity and cement their understanding from classroom material. We strongly believe Montessori education is beyond a doubt, beneficial to young students and will prepare them for life. Much has been written about the benefits of Montessori education, but our students and alumni are testament.

As you may know we are in very close proximity to Dover AFB, physically across from the base off Route 10, behind McDonald’s and Franco’s Pizza & Pasta , providing a very convenient option for quick drop off on the way to the north gate and pickup in the afternoon. We offer flexible scheduling and easy to use online admission application forms for your convenience.

We encourage you to visit us soon and learn what makes Dover Montessori different than other preschools in Dover, Delaware area. As you would expect, we integrate music, art, writing, computer classes (iPad), problem solving, communication, discipline, and of course Chinese and Spanish language classes in our regular curriculum, to name a few. As a small token of our appreciation to your service to our nation, we provide a 10% discount off registration and 10% off weekly tuition for military parents.

Please let us know if we can be of service to your family now and in the future. Like you, we stand ready to serve. Again, welcome to Dover AFB, and best wishes on your deployment here.
