Little Gems Montessori Academy is a private, licensed preschool and childcare dedicated in creating confident, self-reliant and self-motivated children from infant to kindergarten. Our curriculum is based on the development of the whole child preparing them to be innovative thinkers and intelligent leaders. The school offers a unique, nurturing, and refreshing alternative to traditional education, “The Montessori Approach to Education”.
Our History and Vision
Little Gems Montessori Academy was founded in 2014 by a group of Montessori parents and educators, who felt a strong need to provide an environment in the community where children could grow into warm loving people, who aim for excellence in all aspects of life. This team strongly believed that children should be given every opportunity to learn and grow at their own pace and this can be attained through a good foundation in their early years of life.
Their vision is best quoted in Maria Montessori’s own words:
"Our care of the child should be governed, not by the desire to make him learn things, but by the endeavor always to keep burning within him that light which is called intelligence." ∼ Dr. Maria Montessori
Our Mission is to promote a lifelong love of learning through a joyous, supportive environment created by excellent teachers and staff following a Montessori philosophy.
