We accept children 2 through kindergarten. We provide an education, based on the core concepts of the Montessori Method, which supports the philosophy that each child is an individual learner. Children learn through a variety of exercises, including practical life, sensorial, mathematics, language, science, geography, and cultural awareness. In addition to our core academic programs, we also offer yoga, art, music, gymnastics and Spanish as part of out curriculum. Our trained teachers offer not only enriched and in-depth academics, but social skills and character development.
Dr. Maria Montessori, the founder of the Montessori Method, states that “The education of the very young child does not prepare him for school, but life. Free the child’s potential and you will transform him into the world”.

These are activities for the development and refinement of the senses. The materials isolate one single physical quality from the environment (e.g. dimension, color, shape, or texture). Focusing on the use of one sense at a time (e.g. visual, auditory, tactile, etc.) enables the child to exercise and refine each sense to the utmost. This refinement is essential for the development of the mathematical mind (i.e. the ability to discriminate differences, similarities, and identities) of memory, understanding and will, (the facilities of intelligence), the imagination, and consequently the appreciation and interpretation of language and fine arts.
These are activities by means of which the child does not learn mathematics but discovers them. The child acquires the necessary skills to calculate in the decimal system and in others bases (i.e. the binary system) by exploration moving from concrete experiences to the abstraction.
These are activities by which the child phonetically acquires the basic skills for complete writing and reading. At a very early age the child develops an understanding of the parts of speech, oral expression, creative writing, interpretive reading and appreciation of prose and poetry. The language program also includes what we call “keys to the cultural subjects”. Once the child is versatile in the use of all the above skills, he/she possesses the necessary tools and “keys” to explore the world of knowledge.
These are activities which satisfy the child’s tendency to imitate and develop coordination of movement, independence, self-confidence, self care, self awareness, the social skills of grace and courtesy, awareness of and care for the environment (indoors and out of doors), problem-solving, concentration, attention, order, and positive attitudes towards learning
