Our campuses administer tours by appointment only. Our facility is closed and locked during normal business hours. Please call our office to arrange a time that our faculty is available. We ask that prior to the tour you familiarize yourself with the philosophy of Montessori education. Faculty may require that your child do a "trial" day to see if they are ready for the program or if the method is the "right fit" for them to succeed. If a trial day is not successful a new day can be set for the future once milestones are achieved or behavior is improved.
