Realizing the importance of this critical phase of learning, our highly enriched curriculum will take your child through this first and most important "milestone" in his or her education. Rooted in Montessori principles, we provide a strong academic foundation while leaving room for the child to explore many other disciplines from Spanish to our highly acclaimed Shakespeare program.
