Dater Montessori is one of the premiere magnet schools of the Cincinnati Public School district. Montessori education is an effective model of learning that focuses on the whole child including the intellectual, physical and emotional development of the student.
Dater Montessori is a diverse, inclusive and supportive community where the whole child develops through team teaching, individualized instruction and unique learning opportunities. Children attain a deep base of knowledge that allows them to become independent thinkers, considerate citizens and leaders equipped to surpass academic expectations.
The annual Dater Montessori Walk-A-Thon is hosted by Friends of Dater Montessori (FODM) and is our largest fundraiser. FODM is the fundraising group for our school. FODM’s mission is to provide equipment, supplies and activities that would otherwise not be possible due to diminishing school budgets. All money raised directly supports and enriches the educational experience of our Dater Montessori students. All donations are tax deductible. Thank you for supporting our students in this critical way.
Due to the Walk-A-Thon's great success in the last few years, FODM has been able to purchase many essential items. Here's a highlight: 3D printer, laptop cart and software, Weekly Reader and National Geographic subscriptions, phonics workbooks, after school enrichment scholarships, COSI experience, online vocabulary curriculum and so much more. Plus... we purchase $10,000 of Montessori materials and provide $200 in supply money for every teacher, in every classroom, every single year!
Thanks for helping FODM help all Dater Montessori students! We appreciate your support!
