School Notes

  • We accept children from 18 months through kindergarten. To observe a classroom and ask questions we request that you schedule a tour during the hours of 9:30-11:00 a.m.. This will allow you time to observe both students and teachers in action. Montessori is one of those things that just needs to be seen!
