In 1997, The Shim Academy of Montessori was founded in an effort to create a non-biased curriculum within a multi-cultural, mixed socio-economic, interracial environment, where children and teachers can delight in each individual's special qualities.
The Shim Academy is more that just another Child Care Center.
We at the Shim Academy instill in our students that learning is a life long process.
We realize that the children have a natural spontaneous love of learning and natural desire to work.
This is why we have committed ourselves to provide the environment, materials and the right conditions to which children will establish good work habits.
The Shim Academy offers a positive atmosphere where children will develop self-confidence, self-esteem, independence, and self-discipline.
