Maria Montessori

“Our care of the child should be governed, not by the desire to make him learn things, but by the endeavor always to keep burning within him that light which is called intelligence.” 

We Believe...

  • A child’s social, emotional, physical and intellectual development are inter-related. Therefore, we seek to educate the whole child.

  • Children deserve the opportunity to learn and grow at their own pace and they should be free to explore, follow their interests, and make choices.

  • Children should always be treated with respect and love.


  • Children should have the space and freedom to spend time outside and gain an understanding and love of nature and the beauty of this world.


At Living Roots Preschool, we provide a rich indoor and outdoor environment where children can explore and learn with confidence. We strive to help them develop the joy of learning, to be compassionate members of our community, and to be happy.


We believe that all children are unique and that their daily experiences should reflect their needs. That’s why we include plenty of time for music, art, movement, games, and laughter. We blend this with the Montessori Method of Education to create a natural, relaxed, well-rounded program.

"Every child deserves a champion – an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be."
