A Little About Our Programs
The Toddler Program serves children between the ages of 18 months and 3+. Prior potty training is not required for admittance. The classroom is both child-centered and child-sized. It is designed to take advantage of the toddler’s natural drive to “do it myself.” It allows the child to explore their world in a safe, nurturing, and loving environment.
Toddlers are just discovering that they are a separate person from their parent(s). The role of the teacher is to assist the child as they fulfill the basic tasks of developing trust, independence, and self-control. They are there to observe, guide, listen, and foster the natural growth of the child’s personality.
Activities are designed to enhance each child’s physical, emotional, social, and intellectual development.
Activities in the toddler classroom focus on the following:
Oral language development
Fine & gross motor skills
Care of self
Beginning number concepts
Social & emotional growth
The Primary Classrooms serve children age three through the kindergarten year. The five-day-a-week program provides the consistency essential to a child’s overall development. The guidelines, schedule, and expectations remain constant, allowing a child’s level of comfort, confidence, and enthusiasm to grow daily.
The program is carefully crafted to meet each child’s individual needs rather than a one-size-fits-all approach. Children progress at their own pace in a non-competitive environment. They are challenged daily by lessons and materials designed to meet their needs. They develop standards of conduct, courtesy, cooperation, self-control, and respect for the rights and opinions of others while developing their own individual abilities, talents, and interests.
Classrooms are large, open spaces framed by open shelves that display a wide variety of carefully sequenced, hands-on learning activities that encourage thought, exploration and creativity. Classes are mixed-age, family-like environments where the 3-year-old learns from observing older students, and the 5-year-olds benefit from the chance to be leaders and mentors to their younger peers.
Activities in the primary classroom cover the following:
Language and literacy
The arts (music, drama, art)
Knowledge & understanding of our world
Personal & social development
Self-motivation & personal responsibility
PRE K/ KINDERGARTEN PROGRAM
Our Kindergarten Program is more advanced compared to our primary programs. We prepare your child fully, both academically and emotionally, for an excellent transition to elementary school.
Kindergarten is not the start of schooling. By five, most Montessori children will begin to read, and many will be introduced to multiplication and division. It is when many of the earlier lessons come together and become a permanent part of the young child’s understanding.
Here in the Kindergarten Program, your child has many opportunities to teach the younger children lessons that he learned when he was their age. Research proves that this experience has powerful benefits for mentors and mentees.
Montessori is consciously designed to recognize and address different learning styles, helping students learn most effectively. Montessori children are studying cultural geography and beginning to grow into global citizens.
Our goal is to develop students who really understand their schoolwork. Learning is not focused on tote drills and memorization. Students learn through hands-on experience, investigation, and research. They become actively engaged in their studies, rather than passively waiting to be spoon-fed. Making mistakes is not what Montessori children afraid of because they have learned how to self-correct; they see mistakes as natural steps in the learning process.

Hear it from our parents!
Amazing! So grateful we found this wonderful school for our daughter. She has learned so much, and the sense of community at this school is unmatched! The staff and teachers have been wonderful, and I am very appreciative of the excellent communication found here. We plan to be a part of this wonderful school for years to come.
We love this school!! The teachers and staff at this school have done such a great job helping our kids discover their talents and strengths, all while motivating them to learn and grow in areas that they’re not as great or interested in. Needless to say, our kids love this school, their teachers, and their friends at this school.
