About Us

Our Lady’s Montessori School is a Catholic and Montessori school licensed as an early childhood care center, serving children 1 year through Kindergarten.

Our Lady’s Montessori School was founded by the Society of Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity (SOLT) in 1973. SOLT is an international Catholic religious community composed of ecclesial teams of all the vocations – laity, priests, and sisters.

The Kansas City ecclesial team began the school on Tracy Avenue in Missouri in 1973. The school, named the Children’s House, and occupying two homes, served children and families in the neighboring areas for 20 years until 1999.

In 2002, SOLT decided to open the doors of Our Lady’s Montessori School on South 7th Street in Kansas City, Kansas. The school started with one Montessori classroom for children ages three to six, and has continued to grow each year.

Currently OLMS offers four classrooms serving children ages 1 – 6 years of age.
