About Us

Merton Montessori

The School Curriculum

Using a blend of the best parts of the Montessori method of education and more traditional methods of teaching, we help children to become curious learners. Our method of teaching enables them to become aware of their environment and to leverage all their senses and innate strengths to develop their cognitive and emotional intelligence.
