Good morning.  We are closed today, February 3rd, due to the snow.  We apologize for any inconvenience this causes.  We will be emailing out the registration forms later today; a hard copy will also be going home in your child’s cubby tomorrow.  Thank you, enjoy the day!

Good morning.  We are open today, January 21st.  Please use your own discretion when deciding about bringing your child to school today.  As of 6:30 AM, the weather is calling for 4-8 inches of snow with extremely cold temperatures.  If you bring your child to school and the weather starts to get bad, know that you can come pick up your child at anytime throughout the day.  Thank you.

Alvernia Montessori School

We were so sorry to hear about the impending closing of the Alvernia Montessori School. Any loss of a program where students are encouraged to be independent, self-sufficient, self-motivated, responsible and productive members of society is a loss to our community as a whole. We thank the teachers and administration for their many hours of dedicated service to thousands of students over the years.

We also want to take this time to assure our attending families that MCDS continues to go strong. We could not do it without your support of time, talent and treasure. We thank you for your commitment over the years. We have served the Berks County area and beyond for over 45 years and it is our desire to do so for at least another 45!
