Children's Circle Montessori

  • The Children's Circle Montessori School was established in 1981 by Maria Schoch, who continues to serve as a consultant on school operations.
  • Maria's Montessori career began in 1970 and included many years of teaching young children at Montessori schools in Kansas City and Lincoln; she is a college graduate and Montessori Institute of America certified.
  • Our current school director, Andrea Kvasnicka, has served as a classroom guide and teacher since 1982 and has been the Director since 1988.
