"The secret of good teaching is to regard the child's intelligence as a fertile field in which seeds may be sown." - Dr. Maria Montessori
We provide high quality education which serves the whole child by implementing the educational methods of Dr. Maria Montessori. It is our intent to build a solid foundation on which each child can continue to develop with grace and nurture their innate love of learning.

By implementing principles of respect - respect for self, respect for others and respect for the environment - we aim to instill a sense of responsiblitiy in our students. We implement these practices by modeling them ourselves and introducing our students to a number of grace & courtesy techniques.
Numerous studies have shown that children who spend extended periods of time outdoors everyday function better both academically and emotionally.
There is a natural playground behind the school house where children are allowed the freedom to fine tune their gross motor development and experiment with social nuances. Our students love using the slackline, climbing the big tire, swinging on the rope swing, climbing through the rope tunnel and make various obstacles using our balance beams. In addition, our sandbox creates a full-on sensory experience by including a watertrough, an excavator, a funnel shelf and numerous digging tools. It isn't uncommon to hear a child shout "let's build a dam!"
