"A Beautiful Place Where Great Minds Begin"

General Info

We believe that the Montessori method of education provides the most effective and fulfilling way to guide a child through his early years, a critical period for learning and setting patterns which will last a lifetime. The Montessori classroom community is a mixed age group where students are provided the opportunity to engage in purposeful and meaningful lessons through the guidance of a certified Montessori teacher.

Free the child's potential and you will transform him into the world. ~ Maria Montessori

Our son has been transformed by his experience with Ms. Shawna and Ms. Leslie at Bella Montessori. The Montessori Method is uniquely tailored to reach the needs and development of each child as an individual. The results are amazing. People frequently comment on the maturity, kindness, curiosity and intellectual focus that my son brings to all of his endeavors. His early education at Bella Montessori plays a priceless role in developing these qualities. Ms. Shawna and Ms. Leslie love children and are passionate about education. Their passion helps to grow the minds of children and this kind of learning lasts a lifetime.

Overall
Bella Montessori Preschool

We have several friends with children close to our daughter's age (3), all with their children in different preschools. I have yet to have one concern or complaint about Bella Montessori. In fact I can't stop saying good things about them. Our daughter attends three half days each week, at this time, and immediately I saw positive results from the choice we made in schools. Her speech, which she has had no problem with, greatly improved, as have her interest in learning her letters, numbers, and how to write. What I am most impressed about is her social skills. She is an only child and every where we take her we are complimented on politeness and general socialness. Ms. Shawna and Ms. Leslie are always very upbeat and very eager to help or give kudos to our daughter as well as give me suggestions on how to continue to improve her developing skills while at home. I feel very lucky that we found Bella Montessori Preschool!
