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.
The primary goal of the Children's Circle Montessori School is to assist the child to cultivate his own natural desire to learn about himself and the world around him.
We offer children from the ages of 18 months through 6 years a challenging and enriched Montessori curriculum in an inviting and nurturing environment.
The goal of our school is to provide each child with individualized learning opportunities in the highest quality educational environment.
