Learn how a Montessori education can prepare your child for life.

"We do not say that we want to prepare a school for the children, we wish to prepare an environment for life, where the child can develop a life." -Maria Montessori

Why Montessori? Prepare your child.

Summer Camp registration is open.

 

We are disappointed to share that Summer programs for June will not take place.  If you have paid all or a portion of your child's weekly Summer Camp fees through UltraCamp, your account will be refunded within the next 3 weeks and any scheduled payments will be deleted.  For those of you with children enrolled in the Toddler Summer Program and/or Early Childhood Summer program, your account will not be billed until we know about the remainder of the summer. Plans for July summer programs will be announced by June 12th.   We are working closely with the North Carolina Association of Independent Schools (NCAIS) as well as NCAIS member Heads of Schools around the state and locally to arrive at policies, protocols, and safety practices in all areas of our operations, many of which will be guided by the NCDHHS and the CDC.
