Growth is not merely a harmonious increase in size, but a transformation.

-Maria Montessori


Our Programs


A child effortlessly absorbs knowledge, language, and culture through the senses.


We provide children a strong foundation on which to build their blossoming educational career.

Elementary I

Curiosity leads the child to ask the big questions about life.

Elementary II

Children begin to truly realize that learning is a rewarding means to a full and prolific life.


Dr. Montessori felt that the Outdoor Environment should be an extension of the classroom.


A garden raised by children naturally inspires discovery, learning, and adventure.


An atmosphere after school to be calm, fun, comfortable, and safe; being “at home” before they go home.


Summer at MEC brings with it what childhood memories should contain, a time of wonder and exploration.
