No human being is educated by another person. He must do it himself or it will never be done. A truly educated individual continues to learn long after he leaves the classroom, because he is motivated from within by a natural curiosity and love for knowledge.
— Dr. Maria Montessori

Our Mission:

We strive to serve our children and community with integrity to create thoughtful and independent citizens and leaders that our world needs.

Our Vision: 

To guide the development of the whole child by providing an authentic Montessori education which cultivates their independence, natural curiosity, awareness of the environment, and empathy for others while instilling social grace and promoting healthy confidence. Through which they become a self-directed, lifelong learner.

To always remain consistent with authentic Montessori values and maintain our credibility through accreditation with the American Montessori Society (AMS). 

We hope to nurture and continue to form strong partnerships between our school, homes, and families within our community.

We aim to become a model of early-childhood learning in the Marion community and to benefit all interested individuals while offering on-site Parent Education Classes, an Infant/Parent Program, and Montessori Training for interested early-childhood teachers and development professionals in Linn County, the state of Iowa, and the greater region in order to further the growth and potential of curious young minds.
