Our child has been at Villa di Maria since she was 3 (she's now 6). We have loved our family's experience here. She is independent and confident. I'm excited to see how this foundation continues to serve her as she continues to grow.

Villa di Maria is a gem in the heart of Kirkwood. It sits on six beautiful acres of mixed mature oak trees, rolling grass where children run, play and explore. This natural setting fuels their natural curiosity, imagination, and desire to learn. Authentic montessori education provides a foundation for learning that will be with your child for the entire life. Come and see why you should consider AMI Montessori education for your child.
