Rolling Hills Montessori was a dream come true for owner/Director Michelle Collins, who herself is a Montessori teacher.
RHM (as it is fondly known) opened it's doors in 2007 and now houses 5 classrooms and 100 children.
A true Montessori approach is taught by all fully credentialed Montessori teachers and a love of learning is our motto.
All children receive the highest education offered, and have a lot of fun doing it!
