Build a strong foundation for life

A child's first years set the foundation for how they view themselves and the world around them for the rest of their life.  Our Montessori program will give your child a sense of confidence based on accomplishmentscompassion for others, and curiosity about the world.  Our specially trained teachers care for children ages 2 months through Kindergarten.  Your child will feel a strong sense of belonging in our classrooms, designed to stimulate the whole child at every stage of development.
