Flint's public Montessori program is housed within Durant Tuuri Mott Elementary (at 1518 University Ave. next to the Flint Children's Museum and Kettering University). The 2018-19 program offers Montessori elementary classrooms serving grades K-3 and a pre-kindergarten class. Our vision is to continue to add grades through at least middle school. Students must turn 5 by December 1 in order to be part of the Early 5/kindergarten class.
