About Us

About UsWe are a higher learning Montessori Preschool and Kindergarten Educational Center geared for children six weeks to six years of age. We offer full support child care services as well as specialize in an international teaching strategy that facilitates the values, diversity, and principles of the community we serve.

In addition to our traditional Montessori program, we also provide childcare, tutoring services, playgroups, parent networking opportunities, and more. Our school is a center point that not only facilitates education for the young child, but also acts as a meeting place for students, friends, educators, care providers and parents.

We offer the following programs:

  • Infant/toddler
  • Primary Preschool
  • Kindergarten
  • Before and After School Care
  • School Age
  • Summer

Within our Montessori program, children progress at their own pace, moving to the next step in each area of learning as they are ready. While the child learns within a larger community of children, each student receives an individualized program, which stimulates independence.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide an elite educational experience that embraces the philosophies and scientific principles of Dr. Maria Montessori. Our carefully prepared environment and educational program is uniquely individualized to motivate and promote the natural ability of the young child toward freedom of learning through their natural senses.

Projects with a Purpose

The Montessori Method of self-education is a tried and true teaching system used in both private and public early childhood educational programs around the world. The goal is to nurture each child's own innate curiosity and desire to learn.

With Montessori, children learn by employing all 5 senses: touch, sight, smell, taste, & hearing.

Children learn by employing all 5 senses

Independence is encouraged in all activities, particularly in developing self-help skills while the teacher acts as a facilitator to ensure the needs of the child are met in an uninhibited, safe environment.

This innovative learning system places emphasis on the individual stages of a young child's development. As an individualized program, children are not pushed to do more than is developmentally appropriate.
