“It is true, we can not make a genius. We can only give each child the chance to fulfill his
potential to become an independent, secure, and balanced person.” -Dr. Maria Montessori
Your child’s education should be as special as they are.
The Montessori method provides the opportunity for the child to develop independence, confidence, creativity, self-motivation, responsibility and academic competency. Montessori meet the needs of all children, while affording the freedom necessary to preserve each child’s uniqueness.
“Our schools show that children of different ages help one another. There are many things which no teacher
can convey to a child of three, but a child of five can do it with ease.” – Dr. Maria Montessori
Flexible programs designed for busy families
that want to learn, grow, and succeed.
The Primary Montessori Day School offers both full-day and half-day Montessori programs and two calendar options so parents can choose a schedule convenient for their family. Each program is designed to encourage your child’s love for learning, which helps them avoid many struggles that a traditional education environment present.
“We seek to sow life in the child rather than theories, to help him in his growth, mental and emotional, as well as physical, and for that we must offer grand and lofty idea to the human mind”. – Dr. Maria Montessori
An Authentic Montessori Experience.
All of our teachers have AMS, AMI, or MACTE approved post graduate certification in the Montessori method.
We are a non-profit organization, not a for-profit business “chain”,
so we invest all tuition back into the school.
We deliver the original, proven Montessori method.
Our building was designed specifically for Montessori education.
