School Notes

  • Academic preschool. Low teacher/student ratio. Good parent-teacher communication as the child is the focus with both parties. Monthly newsletters keep parents informed. Two parent-teacher conferences are scheduled during the year. Children are outside everyday unless it is raining or below 0. Exposure to nature is a major component of the Montessori philosophy.  Walking trip to near by park makes for a great nature experience.

School Reviews

The teachers are wonderful and the things the children learn are amazing. My daughter will be going into Kindergarten already knowing how to read. A great balance of structure and learning with a ton of fun. She absolutely loves it and it's the best place we have been. I wish I had sent her older brothers here. I had no idea how great it was.
