"We must help the child to act for himself, will for himself, think for himself; this is the art of those who aspire to serve the spirit."

About Us

River & Cape Montessori School first opened its doors as a 0 to 3 program in October of 2014. Since that time, it became abundantly clear that many in the community desired something different for their child, something that felt like home but provided a level of education that went beyond checklists and milestone charts. For those reasons, we set out to prepare a place for them, a new schoolhouse that could serve them from infancy through preschool. This dream became a reality as the new home of River & Cape opened its doors on August 30, 2016.

The Montessori environment creates a haven for children to feel valued, inspired, and challenged. Because of this, each child has the opportunity to develop a healthy self esteem, possess a vast array of knowledge, and experience a deep connection to the world around them. 

All children want to learn; it's choosing the right environment that makes the difference.
