    Montessori is a method of education that is based on self-directed activity, hands-on learning and collaborative play. In Montessori classrooms children make creative choices in their learning, while the classroom and the teacher offer age-appropriate activities to guide the process.

    We staff every classroom with a certified teacher and an instructional assistant.

    Each classroom is equipped with computers and a SmartBoard or ActivPanel for technology integration.

    We are a licensed DSS Childcare Facility.
