The Montessori classrooms create an environment appropriate for the child’s different stages of development and to meet their individual needs within each stage. Montessori schools combine ages into approximately three-year ranges (for example, ages 3-6 or 9-12) in a classroom.

Developmental Spotlight: Early academics and fine motor skills; empathy and caring for themselves, their community, and their environment


The teacher, child, and environment create a learning triangle. The classroom is prepared by the teacher to encourage independence, freedom within limits, and a sense of order. The child, through individual choice, makes use of what the environment offers to develop himself, interacting with the teacher when support and/or guidance is needed.

Montessori Early Childhood programs support children ages 3 – 6 in becoming independent, responsible students who love to learn.


The Early Childhood level, for children ages 2 ½ – 6, encourages preschoolers to explore and discover, to collaborate with classmates, and to take ownership of their education. The Montessori Method encourages self-directed learning that promotes self-confidence, independent thought and action, and critical thinking, while fostering social-emotional and intellectual growth.

What sets Montessori apart in the Elementary years—ages 6 – 12 is the individually paced curriculum that challenges children academically and safeguards their well-being and sense of self. Engaging as contributing members of a respectful community, they learn to question, think critically, and take responsibility for their own learning—skills that will support them in later education and in life.

"We have had our son here for two and a half years and let me tell you, it was hands down one of the best decisions we’ve made! Leaving your little one with someone during the day is a difficult thing to do but when you leave him in good hands it takes the worry away. This school has adopted the Montessori principles beautifully. They truly know how to nurture children and foster curiosity, structure, academics, independence, empathy, and a love of learning. The teachers truly care about my son. He’s been exposed to different cultures, music, and art. Most importantly he’s been allowed to be a child! The communication from the staff is impeccable. I get videos and pictures as well as communication through the Procare app and our GroupMe. I don’t just hear from them when something needs to improve. I hear about all the sweet and silly things he does all day! Meals and snacks are nutritious wholesome foods which is important to me. We couldn’t ask for a more well rounded, loving, and nurturing environment for our son!"
