Why Choose Apple?

  • It’s like comparing apples and oranges

    You have many early education choices for your child, and it’s important to find a program that offers much more than child care. That is the very foundation on which our first school was born nearly 50 years ago. Our programs make the most of a child’s critical learning time from birth to age six. Not all Montessori schools are created equal. Read on to see why Apple Montessori is considered a leader in our field.

  • For nearly 50 years, we have developed the foundation for a lifetime of school success by inspiring children to love learning. Scientific research shows that Montessori children have an advantage not only academically, but also socially and emotionally. That’s why we nurture the whole child.
