At Bernie's Montessori, we understand how positive experiences in the first 5 years of life can prepare a child with the confidence to explore the world. Since 1988, we have given children a head start for a successful academic journey. Visit and discover why so many of our students return to Bernie’s Montessori years later with their own children.
We have stringent protocols to create a safe learning environment for our students and staff. To date, we have not had any cases in any of our schools.
Natural Playground (in Downtown!)
We proudly feature a large playground shaded with trees and a privacy fence. Your child can play, explore the seasons, make friends, and have fun! Our grounds are landscaped with all natural materials for child sensory development. For safety, our playground contains no artificial turf or recycled tire materials.
Infant Program - Coming Soon! (6 weeks - 16 months)
Our infant program provides your child with a very loving, nurturing, and caring environment, which will foster a love of learning and independence. There are varieties of activities for the child to experience throughout the day with age appropriate equipment to meet their development needs. The teachers are well trained and will provide activities during the day that stimulate their minds and help children develop control over their bodies.
Toddler Program (16 - 33 months)
The toddler program is open to children 16 to 33 months. The activities in the toddler room are designed to lengthen a child's attention span, to increase the vocabulary, and to develop a sense of independence and responsibility. These activities also develop large and small muscle skills. Music, story time, arts and crafts, individual and group games are included in these activities.
Preschool Program (33 months - 5 years)
We help children develop a lifelong love of learning by providing a rich environment with prepared educational materials and caring teachers. Within our Montessori classroom, children are allowed as much freedom as possible to progress at their own pace under guidance of a teacher who is specially trained to unfold each child's potential. Most importantly, we make learning fun!
We look forward to meeting you and your child. Contact us for a tour today!
