Each summer IMSchools offers ‘Camp Mosaic’ a relaxed summer learning experience with weekly themes – see below. The 2019 Summer Camp will run from June 24 until August 23, 2019, and we accept students from 18 months to 6 years of age.
While our traditional Montessori materials are still used, this relaxed program incorporates more outdoor time, more gardening time, and many hands-on enrichment opportunities related to the theme. Children can register for one week or the whole session.
Welcome to International Montessori Schools Camp Mosaic….. this week we will get the chance to meet new friends and see our old classmates. To break the ice, our Children will take part in a number of craft activities and spending time outside in the playground and gardens. We will also begin our optional (additional fee) ‘Wee Little Arts Program’ - see information below.

We moved to IMS Paoli this past year with our three young children - and we could not be happier. The teachers are amazing (Ghada, Senem, Kate), and they are accessible and personable. They truly care for our children as we do, and they provide the structured, creative environment that Montessori is known for. Compared to other schools we have tried, IMS Paoli has huge open classrooms with lots of natural light, an expansive outdoor area with playgrounds, plenty of space to run, and they raise chickens and plant gardens. Excellent school and location at IMS Paoli!
My daughter has been going to the International Montessori School of Paoli for 3 years. She really enjoys going to school. It is wonderful as a parent to know your child is happy and truly learning. Here the children learn at their own pace with help from the teachers. It is not a competitive environment like many schools. Feeling successful while having fun is a gift for my daughter that I am happy to have found! I feel confident sending her to kindergarten next year.
My son Michael has been going to this school for 4 years and we love it. We are very please with the level of education he is getting and are confident that he will be prepared for kindergarten. The staff is professional and the school is clean. We recommend this school to everyone we know.
My son is in the toddler class and is loving every minute. They have wonderful, caring teachers who truly want to be a great influence on the lives of children. Its always a struggle to decide to put a child in daycare but once we settled in my whole family benefited! I know that he is in a safe, loving and fun environment and can go to work without worry. Also, you can call with any questions anytime and they don't mind. They have lots of fun activities spread throughout the months and keep the parents pretty informed. Overall a great place for children!
