Welcome to Fiddlehead!

Now open in person following COVID-19 protocols.

Welcome to Fiddlehead Montessori, a Montessori elementary school serving Anacortes, Washington, and the Skagit Valley.

Fiddlehead is located in beautiful Anacortes at 2702 R. Avenue, a 25-minute drive from Burlington, Mount Vernon, and Oak Harbor.

We teach children ages 6 through 12 years old, Monday through Friday, 9am–3:00pm.

At Fiddlehead, we provide an authentic Montessori program, in which each child’s natural love of life and learning is supported.  We strive for our students to gain a capacity for self-knowledge, independence, and the ability to map their course to adulthood.

A little more about us

Our student body comes from all over the valley: Guemes Island, Mount Vernon, Bellingham, Burlington, and other cities, as well as Anacortes. We work to develop a community of parents who support each other, their children, and our school.
