Wondering What to Expect?
Our teachers, including assistant teachers, are Montessori credentialed. They provide instruction and guidance which is consistent and appropriate to the method. We are here to build a caring community of children, families and teachers.
- We create a safe and loving environment where respect for each child as an individual is fundamental.
- We nurture in the child a love and enthusiasm for learning, a respect for others, an appreciation of their own self worth, and a readiness to take their place in the larger community.
- We, as teachers, seek to discover and nurture those unique qualities that exist in each child by our positive attitude and behavior. We serve as models for the children in accordance with the Montessori philosophy.
- We work with each family in our school to support, encourage, and educate one another to benefit our children.
- We work to increase awareness and appreciation for the Montessori philosophy.

Admission is on a first come, first served rolling basis with preference given to siblings of current students.

Parents of applicants accepted for admission will receive a contract which must be returned with a non-refundable deposit. Upon receipt of a tuition deposit, we will hold a place for your child in our program, and you will be contractually obligated for the year’s tuition.
