Description of our Schools and Communities:
Our schools opened in Fall 1999. Our faculty and staff have had the pleasure of helping thousands of wonderful children grow intellectually, socially, emotionally, and developmentally. The schools have eight classrooms. Our teams are led by Heads of School and Education Managers that are MACTE-accredited, certified Directresses. Our families are from many ethnic backgrounds, allowing opportunities for learning and understanding. Our caring, experienced faculty members are dedicated to providing rich educational experiences for each child while guiding them through the Montessori classroom at their individual pace. In addition to our bright, well-equipped classrooms, our outdoor play and garden areas are wonderful environments for recreation and exploration.
We offer an academic day from 8:30 a.m. – 3 p.m. and have extended care for children from 7 a.m. – 6 p.m.
We offer authentic Montessori programs year-round, with our academic year supplemented by a summer session. Our Montessori classrooms are arranged to allow for exploration in Practical Life, Sensorial, Language Arts, Mathematics, Creative Work and the Sciences (Geography, Botany, Zoology, History, and Social Sciences).
