Beginnings Montessori is a non-profit, secular Montessori community of educators, parents, and students that honors the unique potential in each child and educates the whole child by fostering independence, collaboration, service to others and a love of learning.
We offer private early childhood and elementary education for young children, age 3 through 12 years old. Our purpose is to provide a warm, nurturing, and stimulating environment that promotes mental, social, and emotional growth. Our Montessori classrooms provide a rich, structured environment with numerous opportunities for observation, exploration and movement, enabling each student to learn according to his/her individual needs and capabilities.
