Our Programs

The Montessori Method is an educational approach developed by the Italian physician Dr. Maria Montessori over 100 years ago. It is a philosophy of education that uses the scientific method to support the intellectual, social and emotional growth of each individual child. Montessori classrooms are characterized by mixed-age groupings, individual and small group lessons, a prepared environment, and hands-on learning.


Ages 6-12: Learning how to think

Our elementary program aims to educate the whole child. Our classroom supports both academic excellence and social development; there is the freedom to explore and responsibility for work; and our goal is to prepare the child to succeed in life, no matter what path they choose to follow.
