Fostering a love of learning in a calming environment

All of our classrooms and programs are designed to offer enhanced learning opportunities to teach independent thinking skills.

We offer a variety of session options to best meet your child’s needs.

Pre-Primary classroom

Our Pre-Primary classroom (2.5-3.5 years of age) is designed for our younger preschoolers to foster independent learning in a loving environment. The children in this small community spend their morning in a carefully prepared environment designed to foster independence. Language enrichment, small and large motor activities, and practical life exercises introduce the children to the Montessori approach to learning.

Primary classroom

Our Primary classrooms (3.5-6 years of age to include Kindergarten) offer a community with child-size furnishings and age-appropriate activities. Children develop an inner sense of order, independence, and an innate ability to concentrate. Each classroom is rich with materials fostering awareness in math, reading, geography, science, and daily living. Through the idea of “work,” the child plays in a stimulating environment that nurtures the whole child.
