  • Inspiring a lifelong love of learning

    Family owned Apple Montessori Schools has fostered the unique potential of tens of thousands of children since 1972. By embracing the most fundamental teachings of Dr. Maria Montessori, we instill a love of learning, a strong work ethic, creativity, respect, and compassion for others through our research-proven programs. Our method is designed to build upon your child’s innate skills, knowledge and talents. By offering multi-aged classrooms rich with Montessori materials, your child will be actively engaged in his or her own learning process – at his or her own pace.

    Children aged birth to six years old learn more – and more rapidly – than at any other time in their lives. Finding the right program is one of the most important decision you’ll ever make as a parent. Explore our program overview or find your program below.
