A Note from Our Principal 

Dear Families,

This month, we will embark on a journey of fostering connections and celebrating cherished family traditions, as we nurture the spirit of Thanksgiving and togetherness. Our preschoolers will be engaged in activities that inspire gratitude and kindness, such as creating festive crafts, sharing personal experiences, and learning about the importance of giving back to our community. We will be celebrating this month by learning we all have something to share for the greater good, through our Stone Soup Community lunch!


Thank you for entrusting us with the care and education of your children. We look forward to another month of joy and learning!

Reap the Return on Your Investment: the Kindergarten Year in Montessori

Join us on Tuesday, November 7th, 5-6pm to learn more about the Montessori Kindergarten year at Montessori Academy. You’ll hear directly from teachers as we discuss the key benefits of this culminating year in the Montessori program. Learn how we partner with you to set your child up for success in the elementary years and beyond.


We look forward to seeing you there!


Transparent Classroom – New App

Exciting news! Transparent Classroom has launched a revised version of their app, which you can download via Apple or Google Play. Please note: if you already have an old version of the app, you will need to delete it before downloading the new version.


Elementary Information Night

Learn how our Montessori Elementary program supports academic rigor and joyful learning, resulting in students motivated by interest, not rewards. Join our Elementary Information Night on Thursday, November 30th from 5-6pm. Our elementary teachers will share an overview of our approach and answer any questions you may have about the program. (While this presentation is primarily geared towards our current kindergarten families, families with younger students often find it a valuable introduction!)




Family Survey Reminder

Our enrolled family survey launched in October. If you have not received the email, please let us know so we can request it be resent. The survey provides the opportunity for you to give us feedback anonymously on our strengths and areas we can work on. Survey closes November 17.


Family Referral Bonus

Do you know a colleague who has recently had a baby, a friend in need of care who just relocated to the area, or a family member who is seeking a new preschool for their child? When you refer a friend and they enroll, you’re eligible for a free week of tuition. Ask us for details!
