School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Montessori

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our purpose is to develop an environment that allows children to explore, learn, and joyfully master their world. We are committed to the Montessori approach to education, which we believe is the most compatible with our ideas of the human potential. We associate ourselves philosophically with the Association Montessori Internationale, the worldwide organization founded by Dr. Maria Montessori herself.
Our Mission is to provide a high quality traditional Montessori education to children of all family backgrounds and socio-economic status.
We strive to have children exit our program with strong self-esteem, well grounded in academics, joyful about learning, and confident about their place in the world.
