  • In 1997, The Shim Academy of Montessori was founded in an effort to create a non-biased curriculum within a multi-cultural, mixed socio-economic, interracial environment, where children and teachers can delight in each individual's special qualities.
  • The Shim Academy is more that just another Child Care Center.
  • We at the Shim Academy instill in our students that learning is a life long process.
  • We realize that the children have a natural spontaneous love of learning and natural desire to work.
  • This is why we have committed ourselves to provide the environment, materials and the right conditions to which children will establish good work habits.
  • The Shim Academy offers a positive atmosphere where children will develop self-confidence, self-esteem, independence, and self-discipline.
