The mission of the Happy Montessori School is to provide the essentials of quality education for young children: support, predictability, warmth, and acceptance, in the context of intellectually-stimulating, enriching activities. We are influenced by the Montessori philosophy, which recommends a structured environment for children to develop to their full potential.
