      Comparing Montessori
      Montessori children are unusually adaptable. They have learned to work independently and in groups, since they’ve been encouraged to make decisions from an early age, these children are problem-solvers who can make appropriate choices and manage their time well.

      “The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra.”

      What Parents are Saying

      From the time you step into the school you can feel the warmth. My son was very happy here 4 years ago and now, so to is my daughter. She asks for her teacher every morning. She is excited to go to school. I love that she has a home away from home.

      Montessori has been a second home for our children. The staff create a safe teaching and playing environment for the kids. The method of teaching is centered around each child individually and we have seen that with both our kids. We as parents are happy with the choice we have made for our children’s foundation schooling by choosing Montessori Oak Grove.

      Oak Grove Montessori has been a wonderful environment for our 3 year old to learn and grow. The teachers are like second mommys and my son is loved and nurtured, and encouraged to be himself. We have been really happy at the school and our little boy is flourishing.
