  • There’s something so unique and special about Apple Montessori.

    All it takes is one visit to an Apple classroom to see for yourself the proud “I did it!” moments, the endearing bond between teacher and child and the budding leaders who beam with confidence. Why does Montessori work? It’s a research-proven approach based on the scientific observations of the way children naturally learn. It is child-inspired in every way, recognizing the unique potential of every individual. Birth to age 6 is when almost all your child’s brain-building happens and the mind absorbs more than it ever will. Finding a school to make the most of those early learning years is one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make as a parent.

    For nearly 50 years, tens of thousands of families have trusted in Apple Montessori for setting exceptional standards in early childhood education that nurtures the whole child. We’re known for proven academics, and we’re loved for being nurturing and safe. We want the same things our families want for their little ones – to be kind, confident, independent, happy, and well-rounded young people.

    • “We couldn’t be happier with the quality of education and care that our kids receive. The things they come home having learned are always impressive to us and we have absolute faith that they are safe and happy in the care of the great teachers and administration.”

      Allison T.
    • “My daughter is graduating High School and heading off to MIT in the fall. We still talk about what a great environment Apple Montessori was for her. The teachers and staff were caring and nurturing, and she learned so much. When she went into public school for 1st grade, we really saw how much they taught her! All the other kids were still learning how to read, and she was reading short chapter books.”

      Lisa Z.
    • “The children are taught in a way they don’t even know that they are learning! It is fun for them. Not only academics, they are taught good manners, eye contact, and public speaking! I am very happy with the results.”

      Frank C.
    • “Impressive, educational and a family feel unlike any other school I have encountered. Both of my children have attended this school. I can tell you that they were given love, patience understanding which fostered emotional intelligence/growth.”
