Your child’s social, emotional, and academic growth is as important to us as it is to you. That’s why our classrooms are led by Montessori trained teachers and assistants, who pay close attention to your child’s progress, and guide her through the Three Year Montessori cycle, culminating in Kindergarten.  Art, science, literacy, math and social studies are introduced to her at age-appropriate levels, laying a solid foundation for future learning, and opening her mind to the wider world.  As he moves through the years exploring materials and curriculum and making friends, he’s being carefully and confidently guided into and prepared for the Elementary years, beginning in first grade.  Throughout the Three Year Cycle, he is learning at his own pace, cooperating and playing with friends, and enjoying plenty of music, art, and outdoor time woven into each day. 

Literacy practice allows students to learn at their own pace and develop a solid understanding of language.
