Children's Garden Montessori School

Children's Garden is educating children since 1980. We pride ourselves in being an early childhood center that uses an eclectic pedagogical approach.
At Children's Garden we believe very strongly that the young child learns through talking and playing with his/her peers in an environment that supports his/her efforts at socialization.
We therefore consider that all of the child's time with us is a valuable learning experience and we structure our activities to be centered on the child's needs.
Ours is a loving and educational environment that should feel like a second home to your child, and our staff and students a "second family." We strive to nurture and teach your child in a comfortable and fun place that allows him/her to reach their fullest potential.
