How Will I Know if Montessori Is Right for My Child?

Montessori emphasizes learning through all five senses, not just through listening, watching, or reading. Come and observe to see if our approach is a good fit for your child. We encourage observations of an authentic Montessori classroom to ensure Fountainhead is the best match for you and your family. The experience across schools can vary dramatically. The observation experience gives valuable information in choosing a school for your child.

"Within the child lies the fate of the future."  —Maria Montessori
