    Montessori is an education philosophy and practice that fosters rigorous, self-motivated growth for children and adolescents in all areas of their development, with a goal of nurturing each child's natural desire for knowledge, understanding, and respect.

    Here are some unique program elements that will be in each of our Montessori classrooms:

    • Newly renovated spaces to enhance the hands-on learning
    • Specially designed learning materials
    • Two teachers (one primary, one assistant) specifically trained in the Montessori method of teaching
    • Mixed age groups (3-, 4-, and 5-year olds)
    • Self-directed education
