We follow the Montessori approach, which is designed to aid the development of children by providing them with the environment and materials they need to learn independently and joyfully.
Highly trained adults guide and support the children in their development.

School Notes

  • We currently have two mixed-age classrooms serving children 2.5-6 years old, with an AMI-trained teacher and assistant in each class. We also have an AMI-trained outdoor teacher, so that the children may choose to work outdoors for parts of their day. 
  • We invite interested families to first, carefully and thoroughly, read through our website, and then request an in-person tour of the school followed by a classroom observation. Please contact us by email for more details.
