Isla Montessori views an education as priceless and a right for every child. We look at each child's specific needs and create a personalized curriculm that educates the whole child. We value social and emotional education as much as acedemic. We offer options for half day and full day tuition, as well as, afterschool enrichment programs.

At Isla Montessori, we believe that every child is entitled to a quality education and that early childhood education programs play a critical role in a child's development. Before a child and the family is accepted, we believe that everyone involved needs to demonstrate commitment and support to one another and to Isla Montessori community. Therefore, we have listed below the suggested steps to submitting an application on behalf of your child
The first step in applying to Isla Montessori’s Educational Programs is to understand the Montessori philosophy and pedagogy. Therefore, please read the section of this website with more resources on the Montessori Method inpractice. The school mission on the home page and School-Parent Partnership below also provide guidance. Conducting additional research is also recommended to determine if this is the right educational style for your family.
