Dedicated veteran teachers, an orderly yet warm environment, a steadfast dedication to the Montessori curriculum. My daughter has flourished here.

This preschool paved the way for my daughter. They guided her and aided her every step along the way. She looked forward to go to school every morning. At the end of the day she was able to communicate what she had learned and played. Now in Kindergarten, she frequently asks to visit her former teachers. I will be sending my son once he is ready.
