Why Choose Alef Bet Montessori?

“Education is a natural process carried out by the child and is not acquired by listening to words but by experiences in the environment.” 

Dr. Maria Montessori

We offer classes from preschool through elementary grades based on the philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori.
