Canterbury Preparatory School

  • Our primary objective at the Canterbury Schools is to provide the most enriching environment to facilitate a child's development.
  • We believe that every child has the ability to learn and to teach, and that a child who enjoys learning will always seek challenges in life.
  • Our program is based upon the Montessori principles of self-direction, and experiential education.
  • We promote a thoughtful and sensitive demeanor in the classrooms, and we support cooperation between children as they learn from one another.
