Dear Yadkin Path Parent or Caregiver...

I am excited to welcome you to Yadkin Path Montessori School at 2135 Bringle Ferry Road, just 5 minutes from downtown Salisbury. Seeing a need for a childcare center and school with a Montessori philosophy in the Salisbury area, I began the school with the intention of creating a non-religious, child-directed, multi-cultural learning environment with a heavy emphasis on nature, science, and outdoor learning. Becoming a mother made me aware of the importance of and the need for more options for quality child care in Rowan County. Yadkin Path Montessori currently serves children ages 6 weeks to 12 years, with programs in early childhood, pre-school, pre-K, Kindergarten, Elementary, and by-the-week summer camps. We are open Monday-Friday from 6:30 am to 5:30 pm. We gladly offer tours of our facility by appointment.

We are proud of our Montessori trained teachers who have experience in observing children, knowing what materials to offer them, and facilitating child-driven learning. We work hard to protect the three-hour work cycle so that your child has plenty of opportunities to practice concentrating on materials that engage and fascinate. We encourage parents and caregivers to work with teachers to create a seamless environment of respect between home and school for children attending Yadkin Path.

Our classrooms are large with windows and doors to the outside and plenty of space for developing fine and gross motor skills. Our work stations contain fascinating and developmentally appropriate materials that children are free to return to until they master. The campus is large – 9 acres, idyllic with a pond and featuring natural learning playgrounds, workspaces, and classrooms. We have a garden, two goats, and a hen-house so that the children have opportunities to interact with animals and participate in growing their own food. We are so proud to offer the premier childcare and schooling center in Rowan County.

The creative elite currently in our culture, including Jeff Bezos, the founder and CEO of Amazon, and Larry Page and Sergey Brin, founders of Google, graduated from Montessori schools. Some other famous innovators who were Montessori children include:

  • Julia Child, Celebrity Chef and Author

  • Sean “P. Diddy” Combs, Rap Artist and Entrepreneur

  • Anne Frank, Memoirist and Author

  • T. Berry Brazelton, Pediatrician and Noted “Baby Whisperer”

  • Yo-Yo Ma, Award Winning Cellist

This Family Handbook will give you information about our policies and rules, our atmosphere, our goals and how we serve you and your child through Montessori philosophy and practice. If you should have questions at any time, please address them to our staff or contact me.

Founder and Director
