Our Programs

Transition Room


Boosting your child’s brainpower starts early at Woodpark Montessori. Our infant program is geared towards children ages 6 weeks through 16 months.
Toddler Room


At Woodpark, when children are developmentally ready they move on to our Transition Room! In the transition room they are introduced to many new exciting skills alongside beginning Montessori Education.
Preschool Room


We begin a more structured learning in our Toddler room. We incorporate exciting planned play opportunities for our toddlers as well as continuing their Montessori education from the Transition room!


We teach our preschoolers about the world around them through hands-on participation at their own pace! We believe that preschoolers should be given time to experience education and understand concepts in a way that makes sense to them. The preschool picture that the preview has now can stay the same!


We have a unique and highly valuable Kindergarten program! Our director, Miss Misty, is also our Kindergarten teacher. Over the past 20 years, we have learned so much from each other and she has helped create an amazing program that brings special one-of-a-kind concepts.

About Us-Burnsville & Savage Locations

Our Burnsville location is located just behind Caribou Coffee at the intersection of County Road 42 and County Road 11 in Burnsville. Our Savage location is right behind the Wells Fargo on 42, across from the Kwik Trip. Woodpark Montessori is state licensed and offers a complete and carefully prepared Montessori environment. We emphasize social, emotional, intellectual and physical activities for the growing child. Our professional qualified staff members are sensitive, loving, caring and have a profound respect for the needs of the child.
The following areas of work are systematically implemented according to the young child's learning receptiveness (i.e. practical life activities, sensorial activities, language, math, geography, science, and culture). In our prepared environment, the children learn to respect different abilities and interests of other children and enjoy being together.
The Montessori way is our way of approaching the child to help him to lay a foundation in order to help him/herself for the rest of their life. The aim of the Montessori Method is to assist the child to develop totally and fully. When a child, especially between the ages of 2 1/2 and 6 years is exposed to the scientific materials in our prepared environment, it brings out their full potential. The child is given freedom to choose and proceed on his/her own pace, by this the child begins to like what he does and not do what he likes and he is able to feel an inner feeling of success.
With unconditional positive regards in a loving and caring environment, and while in the hands of skilled professionals, we look forward to assisting your children to bring out the best in them. Our program encourages suggestions and dialogue and we will be happy to have your feedback in order to improve them function at an optimum level.

Miss Misty started at Woodpark when she was just 16 years old in 1995. Not only is she our director, but she is also our lead curriculum coordinator.
