Discovery Academy – Montessori Preschool and Private School


” Our aim is not merely to make the child understand, and still less to force him to memorize, but so to touch his imagination as to enthuse him to his innermost core. “ – Dr. Maria Montessori

Our school is built on the Montessori idea that children, given the encouragment and freedom to explore in an enriching environment, will develop learning skills, social skills and responsibility. We provide structure for learning without strictness and tension. Now is the most dynamic period of learning in your child’s life. We’re here to help your children reach their potential. Tell me more about Montessori…

Our teachers love what they do. They are loving to the kids, and they work to create a respectful, calm and peaceful environment.

Our programs are age-appropriate, and are tailored to your child’s achievement level and learning style. Our facility is spacious, safe and full of high quality learning resources. We have a fabulous enclosed playground that is especially enjoyed by our younger students.

We have many additional enrichment programs to round out your child’s growth. We take monthly field trips, we bring in a special teacher for a weekly Spanish lesson, and we have extra classes (for nominal fees) in Montessori Art programs, Gymnastics, KinderMusic and Suzuki Music. We can also facilitate private piano lessons on the building’s grand piano.

In all classes, we determine each child’s learning styles (auditory, visual or kinesthetic). We also incorporate neurological organization exercises into lessons–that help the two sides of the brain communicate better–which help lay the groundwork for better learning. We also offer private tutoring in most subjects through high school age.

For children younger than six years, we offer morning and afternoon sessions and full- and part-time arrangements. For children aged six and older, the school day is from 8:30 to 3:15. We offer before and after-school programs to assist our working parents.Playground
