Our lead teacher and director, Jeanine Wanberg, is a deeply experienced Montessori instructor who has been leading our classroom for over 25 years. Her mentor was trained by Maria Montessori herself. She has mastered the role of "caring guide" and knows each student well, aiding them to discover their strengths and overcome their weaknesses, enabling them to fulfill their individual potential.
Small and Personal Environment
Our classroom is capped at just 20 children, allowing our two teachers to provide personal attention to each one. Some activities happen in groups, but most of each day is set aside for kids to choose their own activities, building their skills and confidence through uninterrupted concentration.
Developing a Passion for Learning
This is not daycare, it’s a school. There are no toys, the kids do work. There is no technology, only analog materials. But kids love coming here, because they're given stretches of uninterrupted time to develop mastery over many areas, creating an organized, engaged, and focused mind.
Our long-term teachers ensure a stable environment, developing close relationships with students and helping them progress over several years. The kids also grow up together, from curious and hesitant 3-year-olds to confident and kind 5-year-olds, and each child has the opportunity to be both mentee and mentor to others as they progress. This continuity of experience maximizes learning and development.
