Our Values

We challenge children to thrive at everything they do while having fun with the process of learning! We feel that children learn through play and the process is much more important than the end product.


The school philosophy, borrowed from Maria Montessori and other methods, is Child-Centered. Maria Montessori was a brilliant and original educator, scientist, healer, humanitarian and philosopher. Respect for the child is the cornerstone on which all other Montessori principles rest.
