MELC is the largest, oldest and most established Montessori school in Columbia, South Carolina.

All teachers are European trained and our diplomas are considered by Federal guidelines as the foreign equivalent of a Master's degree.

In addition to giving the highest level of Montessori education, our parents enjoy top notch child care and access to our in house dance, music, art, drama, gymnastics, computer and foreign language classes. This saves our parents both time and money as their child's art activities are completed before they are picked up from school.
