As an AMI (American Montessori Internationale) School, we follow the curriculum and traditions established by Dr. Maria Montessori more than 100 years ago.
More than simply a method of education, the Montessori approach fosters the development of the whole child-intellectually, physically, socially, morally and spiritually.
