We understand each student has unique interests, abilities, and needs. Respecting that individuality is important to us. In the Montessori classroom, young students are encouraged to ask questions, learn how to find answers, and process information for understanding. Private observations are available and encouraged. Observe the “Montessori Advantage” – Seeing is Believing! Contact us and we will find a time that is convenient for you to visit. Morning hours, from 9:00am-11:00am, the full Montessori curriculum is ongoing.
