Montessori method

The Montessori Curriculum follows the needs of each individual and fosters a true love of learning with hands on materials and concepts.

As teachers in a Montessori envioronment, we “follow the child” which focuses on tapping into the child’s passion for learning and helping to guide them towards individual growth and development.

A Word

From Our Head Of Schools

“Even though I have had the opportunity to educate thousands of children throughout my career, I am still amazed – every single day – by every child I come into contact with.

Children have an innate desire to listen, learn, and grow. And as an educator, my objective is to capture that interest and help guide the child – not force the child – towards being a well-rounded social, physical, emotional, and intellectual member of our community.

If you are a parent, grandparent or caregiver, I hope you’ll consider touring our school and joining me for a conversation.”
