Indigo Montessori School

Indigo Montessori School offers classrooms from infants through age 6.

At Indigo Montessori School, children learn education through the Montessori Method, a sophisticated approach that brings out the best in children. Children absorb the most information from birth through age 6, especially through their senses. Our program focuses on teaching through the senses by offering children tools and activities that focus on their fine motor skills. The results are outstand

Dear Mothers, we hope you enjoyed the beautiful hand-crafted art that your children made for you! Over the past two weeks, we have focused around mother-appreciation during circle times, lessons, and through artwork. Our students reflected on their moms as they made gifts by choosing colors, patterns, or designs that they thought their moms would appreciate. We hope you all had a great Mother’s Day weekend! Check out our Mother's Day Photo Album of 2021 to see more photos of what each class/age group worked on for their moms.


Our teachers and team all contributed to adding to some holiday cheer in the employee lounge over the past couple of weeks before break. We had a very successful 2020 school year, despite these extraordinary times! Thankful for all of the support from the community and crew. Warmest wishes to everyone!

It was special to see our students celebrate with their moms this Friday as they gathered together for an early Mother’s Day celebration in all of the Indigo classrooms. There were beautiful gifts, conversations, a recital by the Primary class, and lots of quality time together. Happy Mother’s Day and thank you, moms, for all you do!


Thank you to our dear Indigo & Wonderland parents for the holiday gifts and delicious treats for the teachers this morning! We all feel the love and support!

We had a fantastic Mother's day celebration today! The classrooms were transformed into beautiful cafe's where moms and their children enjoyed the company of each other. All of the students, from infants through age 5, also had special gifts for their moms... We hope you all had a wonderful day, and Happy mother's day!

It was a special day meeting with all of the parents for Conferences at Indigo, as always! We appreciate our supportive parents, and we adore your children! We are so very proud of each child's progress and accomplishments. It has been a fantastic school year!

Our Indigo and Wonderland team enjoyed some quality time together last evening for a Friendsgiving potluck… it turned out to be a feast! Thank you everyone for the delicious dishes and good times! We were too caught up in the moment to think about taking pictures of everyone present, but we are so very thankful for all of you! And we are also thankful for all of the supporting families and the students who make up Indigo and Wonderland – we wouldn’t exist without you!

Just wanted to share a couple of photos from our annual Halloween Party with Indigo's sister program, Wonderland Arts! The decor was spook-tacular, as always! Such a blast :-)


Off to a great start in the new school year! Happy to have returning students and new students join us in the Primary Studio. During the first week of school, we had many lessons on our "ground rules," where I covered topics like respect, caring for our environment, grace, and courtesy. The kids are loving the new set up! ~Angelique

Today, our classrooms were transformed yet again, this time to celebrate the dads of our students. We had delicious treats, colorful gifts, and songs that the kids presented to show their love and appreciation for their dads :-)

This is Angelique from Indigo Primary Studio with a message to help support one of my dearest friends in the Triangle who has her own dental practice for kids in Durham. I just want to spread the word to any parents looking for a great place to bring their kids. I attached her bio and the practice's page for you to check it out!

Last Friday, we invited the dads of our school to come in for an early Father's Day celebration. The classrooms were again transformed for a picnic style gathering. It was a fun and sunny day as the students showed appreciation for their fathers :-)

On Friday, we celebrated the moms of our school so that their children could enjoy some quality time together in their own classroom. It was a lovely gathering with treats and gifts. To all of the mothers at Indigo, we appreciate your support and hope that you all had a wonderful Mother’s Day!

Thank you to Mastaneh (the owner of Indigo) for always making a lovely display of snacks for parents during our parent-teacher conferences! It’s been a great day for us teachers as we have been meeting with our wonderful and supportive parents to talk about the progress of their amazing kids. If you are a parent signed up to meet with us tomorrow, be sure to bring your appetite and arrive a few minutes early to grab some munchies!

A festive touch of green added to some of the material in our practical life area for our primary kids to enjoy :-)


Congratulations to our older students who are graduating from our school and who have been accepted into some of the top private schools in our area, such as IMS & Durham Academy! These days, there are application and interview processes for 4 and 5 year olds to test their abilities and skills, and our students were well prepared. As Durham is becoming such a hot spot to live in, it’s getting harder for kids to go to their desired school. For example, Durham Academy had 500 applicants to choose from, and only 120 spots. Here at Indigo, we work very closely with our little ones to ensure that they have plenty of opportunities to choose from before they move on :-)

We had such a lovely celebration for the mothers of our students on Friday. The kids had such a great time putting together the center pieces for the tables where they would join their moms for tea and tarts. What a beautiful day it turned out to be. We hope everyone had a beautiful weekend. Happy Mother's Day!


Parents of Indigo, if anyone is willing to let me post some imagery of your kids on this page, please let me know! I would like to post images from the primary class for other parents and outsiders to get a visual of what we do here. Just get in touch with me in an email if you are interested. Thanks!

Welcome to all of the new parents and friends who "like" us. Thank you for your support!! So far, we are off to a great start at Indigo this school year. Each studio is so peaceful and calming to be in. I've been here for years, and I must say that this year feels especially special for a number of reasons. We have a great bunch of students, parents, and dedicated staff, and I'm looking forward to the great things in store for everyone this year.
