About Montessori Learning Center

History and Philosophy

Montessori Learning Center has been serving young children and families for over forty years.  Known as the “small gem” of the Montessori community, our intimate setting provides a safe and warm place for toddlers and preschoolers to begin their educational and social life.  We believe, as Maria Montessori did, that education is more than simply the transfer of information.  True learning occurs when a child is allowed to explore his/her environment independently, with gentle guidance, and to experience the success of being able to say “I did it myself”. 

At Montessori Learning Center, we view each child as an individual with his or her own unique style and pace of learning. Recognizing this, our highly trained teachers individualize each child's curriculum, providing them opportunity to fail, succeed, and challenge themselves in a safe and supportive environment.  

"I could not be more impressed by this school and all that it provides children and the community at large. Working in the field of education nationwide for over fifteen years, I can say with confidence that Montessori Learning Center is a facility that is above par in this state."
