The training of the teacher who is to help life is something far more than the learning of ideas. It includes the training of character; it is a preparation of the spirit. - Maria Montessori

Our teachers love and appreciate children as unique beings who are working to discover the world and their place in it through their daily activities. All of our Head teachers are certified by the American Montessori Society, and several have advanced degrees in Education. Together they offer more than a hundred years of experience and a collective devotion to teaching young children.
