McKenzie Montessori Institute is a private, independent, non-profit educational facility for children 6 weeks to 12 years. Our current programs include: Infant/Toddler, Montessori Preschool & Kindergarten, Elementary On-line Tech Support,  Quality childcare for before and after programs and for most public school closure days.  See our calendar page for more information.

Our goal is to educate the whole child through the Montessori approach which addresses the intellectual, social, emotional and physical needs of the child.

Montessori is a method of education based on the observations, methods and philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori. This method of education focuses on the development of the whole child in all areas of life, and supports the idea that children possess an innate desire to explore, discover, and learn. This is supported best within a social environment that inspires personal development.

The philosophy of  McKenzie Montessori Institute is to encourage the child’s interests and curiosity while developing responsibility and independent thinking that will foster a life-long love of learning.

One of the greatest strengths of our program is the highly trained and qualified teachers  who take a personal interest in their students and parents. They care about the whole person and see education as much more than simply the training of fine minds. These dedicated teachers form the foundation of a caring community in which children develop and learn to become responsible, loving human beings.
