Faculty AND STAFF

"The greatest sign of success for a teacher...is to be able to say, 'The children are now working as if I did not exist.' " // Maria Montessori

Our faculty are all highly-skilled educators, with a Montessori-certified teacher in every classroom. We are committed to the professional development of all of our teachers, staying in touch with the latest educational and child development research, while maintaining the core tenets of the Montessori philosophy. Additionally, all teachers and staff are re-certified in CPR and Basic First Aid on a yearly basis.
