At Arcadia Montessori School our teachers carefully prepare classroom environments which emphasize consistency and dependability. Each activity has a place; and projects are carried out in an orderly, relaxed manner. The teachers create a nurturing environment, which encourages individual and social development for the younger and older child.

Arcadia Montessori Schools’ warm and loving teachers spark the children’s imaginations and kindle in them a sense of limitless possibilities the world has to offer. By truly believing in each child’s potential, the teacher encourages the child’s self-confidence and promotes positive attitudes toward lifelong learning.

Our teachers have received their training from an accredited Montessori training center and/or hold a Bachelor’s Degree. All staff members are CPR certified and live scanned. We are a multi-generational school. Many of our staff’s children and grandchildren have attended AMS.

We look forward to welcoming your family into our family!
