Profile: Alef Bet Montessori School is a Jewish Montessori day school in Bethesda, Md. We serve children aged 15 months through 6th grade. Our mission is to instill the love of Torah, Israel, and fellow human beings through our commitment to citizenship, ethics, morality, personal responsibility, courtesy, and independence.

We combine the educational philosophy and methods of Dr. Maria Montessori with a full Jewish and Hebrew curriculum and prayer. Our curriculum includes daily prayer, the weekly Torah portion, Judaic studies, and Hebrew. For secular studies, our students learn age-appropriately about language arts, science, math, geography, art, and music.

The Montessori approach to learning is all about creating a self-guided, self-correcting, and immersive learning experience that nurtures the whole child. By learning the Montessori way, our children are well-prepared for life as they learn persistence, critical thinking, and problem-solving.
