Serving children up to 5 years old, we follow the Montessori philosophy of learning through all five senses. Our children move at their own pace, as opposed to the traditional group pace. Under the guidance of our highly trained Montessori-certified teachers, children choose concrete lessons according to their own abilities and interest. As a member of the American Montessori Society, the Early Childhood program nurtures the development of a strong sense of self-discipline, motivation, empathy and a love of learning.

Students who will enter kindergarten in the Fall of the following school year participate in the Raider Readiness Pre-K Skills Program. Rather than nap in the afternoons, the Raiders spend that time focusing on handwriting, math concepts, and pre-reading skills. This Raider Readiness pull-out program enhances the Montessori curriculum and helps ensure our students are well prepared for kindergarten.
