Dr. Maria Montessori

​​Our Co-Directors and  Executive Administrators help to oversee all 5 schools. They have spent their lives dedicated to helping children develop into academically successful, confident and caring individuals.


Most of our team has been with us for over 40 years. Among them, they hold Master degrees, Bachelor and Montessori certifications and have taken numerous educational workshops.  They believe that the best gift we can give our children is the gift of knowledge.
