From Our Website

When our school obtained 501 c(3) non-profit status a Board of Directors was established under the name of Montessori Education Trust. This group has embraced the vision of the school and works to support and promote that vision in our community. They are charged with planning for what the school may look like in 10, 20, or 30 years. As one Montessorian put it, "An effective Board is working to create the school we want for our grandchildren." Our Board members have been very involved in the first Capital Campaign that took place in 2008-2009 and also our "Building Peace" Campaign for the addition to our Gordon Avenue school in 2017-2018.


We understand that deciding on a preschool for your child takes much consideration. We hope that you will be able to visit our school to observe in a classroom and get your questions answered. This visit is an important opportunity for you to have the information you need to decide if our Montessori environment is a good fit for your family prior to submitting your application. The Toddler class is open to children ages 21 months to three years. Toddlers typically start at the beginning of the school year in late August.
