Montessori kids are happy kids
Our Schools and Philosophy

A Montessori Education is about more than just academics. Maria Montessori believed in giving children a head-start in life through a combination of self-awareness, socialization, empowerment and fostering independence through child-led learning. When a child feels safe and secure in his or her environment, he or she not only begins to feel secure in their own intellect, but in his or her place within the world.
