A Note From Our Director
LORENA CATOIRA-NAVEIRA
SCHOOL DIRECTOR

      As parents, we know that making sure your child receives the best education is paramount to you as you search for a school. When it comes to education, there are many different methods and approaches in use today.

     However, it is my belief that the more research you do, will always lead you to the same conclusion, that the Montessori Method is the premier method to unlock the potential in a child. Our school is founded on the basic principles of education used and developed by Maria Montessori.

     By adhering to even the simplest of techniques, we strive to ensure that the manner and approach used with each and every child is given in a way that maximizes their ability to learn, explore and discover, thus fulfilling Maria Montessori’s original belief that providing this type of learning and environment produces the very best in every child. I encourage you to visit our school and let us share with you how your child can begin down the road to a rewarding education where the benefits last a lifetime.
