The Best  of Both  Worlds

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”

- R. W. Emerson

Montessori Preschoolers Grow Up to Be...

...children who are innately orderly and self-sufficient,         

   confident in their own abilities and able to articulate

   and justify their opinions.

...students with a lifelong love of learning.

...young adults who are agents of change.


Traditional public schools tend to focus on a child’s achievements as measured by their grades and test scores. In contrast, our Montessori preschool assesses a child’s overall growth and progress. This whole-child approach lends itself toward greater maturity, academic achievement and social skills development.

One study published in the journal "Science" demonstrated that children attending a Montessori school were able to exhibit positive responses to adverse social situations. The same study also found that children in a Montessori environment had more advanced mathematics and reading skills, and that they were better able to organize, make knowledgeable decisions, adapt to changing circumstances, and plan ahead.
