Our Mission

We strive to offer children of the community an educational experience that puts into practice the profound observations and principles of Dr. Maria Montessori. The Montessori program is characterized by order, structure and comprehensiveness, based on the physiological needs of the child; incorporating reality based activities designed to assist the child in the development of all areas of learning at the child’s personal ability level and at the child’s own pace. The goal of our program is to develop each child’s independent physical, emotional and intellectual functioning to his maximum potential through the exciting process of exploration and discovery.
