We love our work with children and view every day as an opportunity to see the best that humanity has to offer. We are delighted when we glimpse the compassion of a child rubbing another’s back during story-time or asking another if she needs a hug, and we are joyed at the independence of a three year old setting up a tea party and inviting his friends. Each day is something new and amazing at Olive Branch School, a  Montessori Primary School environment serving children ages 2.5-6 years old and their families.

Our school offers a range of experiences that encourage resourcefulness (critical thinking), support the building of self-control, discipline and decision making skills (cognitive and executive functioning) and nurture the emotional and spiritual growth of each child through positive social interactions.  Children attending Olive Branch School are a part of a supportive, shared community experience 5 days a week. Our class size is small and responsive with a 7:1 ratio, 14 child maximum and led by a fully trained AMI Guide with a Masters Degree in Education. A Montessori education truly gives a child the keys to the world and sets them on the road to loving learning.
