The goal of our Montessori preschool program is to follow the child, offering weekly individualized learning plans for each child. The curriculum areas focus on practical like skills, with particular attention given to the cultivation of grace and courtesy. Individualized learning plans and curricular units of study complement each other to offer a rich educational experience for our little learners in a calm and nurturing prepared environment.
At La Montessori Nurtury Day School, we recognize that classrooms are children’s first communities, so we foster a unique sense of community among students, families, and staff.
We are now accepting enrollment reservations for August. Call today for more information or to schedule a tour at our current location.
