What We Offer
“Scientific observation then has established that education is not what the teacher gives; education is a natural process spontaneously carried out by the human individual, and is acquired not by listening to words but by experiences upon the environment.”
― Maria Montessori

What are your Hours?
Our normal hours are from 7:30am-6:00pm Monday through Friday.
Is enrollment during a specific time of year?
No, enrollment is on going and children are welcome to enter at any time during the year.
However it’s best for students to have a full week in school to get properly acclimated and help to reduce separation anxiety so Mondays where there are no holiday closures are the best time to enroll. Separation anxiety is a normal developmental stage where children experience anxiety when they are separated from their parent. Separation anxiety is a process so please be patient with your child, and us, as we will get to better days.
How do you group Children?
In our classroom we have an open floor concept inclusive environment where all of our students interact together throughout the day. Younger students learn from the older students, and older students learn leadership skills by assisting the younger students. In our classroom we come together for meals, circle time, classroom prayer and other memory work yet each student completes age appropriate assignments and activities based upon their skill set.
Do you accommodate allergies and dietary restrictions?
It is our goal to keep each child safe especially those with food allergies, sensitivities, and restrictions to the best of our ability. All food allergies will be included in each child’s chart, posted in the kitchen and meal prep areas in plain view. Upon enrolment we request this information and will rely on parents to keep us informed if there are any changes that follow so we can update our records. Parents must submit written documentation with specific guidelines for addressing each special type of dietary need and food allergy. We are not a peanut free school.
Are you CPR certified?
We are CPR and FIRST AID certified as well as MAT (Medical Administrative Training) so in the event of a medical emergency we can safely give medical care and administers an Epi Pen. Parents are responsible for providing an Epi Pen along with the physician’s prescription.
