At Monticello, we strongly believe that every child is a unique individual with an ability to learn and grow to their fullest potential at their own pace. Through hands-on, developmentally age appropriate activities and motivation, children can achieve their goals and be the best that they can be. Our mission is to provide a safe, enriched, culturally diverse and educational environment for children of all ages.
At Monticello, a typical day would be something like this... You will always be greeted by someone at the front desk or outside. Every teacher in our school is aware of who is who.
