School Starts in just over a week! We are so excited to see you soon. 

Our office hours next week are Monday-Wednesday, 9am-2pm. Thursday and Friday, the staff/faculty will be in training. The office will be available intermittently on those days. Email us or call ahead if you need us! 
Does Montessori education, in fact, contribute to the development of executive functions? Indeed it does. Click HERE to read more.

Our Grounds
Our 14+ acre grounds are really a huge asset to our school and well loved by our families. 

Calling our helpers! School mom, Jennifer Irvin, is planning a grounds clean-up day on August 12 at 10am. We can use your help clearing trash, cleaning beds, and pruning our garden. Hope you can join us Tuesday!
CAPE, our parent association, is busy planning some great events for this school year. The first event, our family Meet and Greet, is on August 26 at 6:30pm at Wintergarden Nature Preserve.
