Love of Learning
By inspiring the joyful discovery of self and a passion for learning and independent thinking, we empower children to be knowledgeable and responsible citizens who contribute to their community and make an impact in the world.
2 months - 3 years old
Our infant community is a safe and rich world full of opportunities for your baby to actively explore and enjoy. Caring and learning are inseparable. Our toddler communities are carefully planned spaces to promote your child’s independence, order, creativity and freedom of choice. These are safe places where your child is free to explore how the world works and how to work in the world.

Our Primary communities offer your child the freedom to learn and grow through hands-on experiences and creative exploration with beautiful authentic Montessori materials.
