Our Story

Southwest Montessori Academy opened in 2013 with a total of eight students and three staff members. We have grown to over 30 students and eight staff members and have built a community of parents and teachers who are excited about working together to serve our students! We have a passion for helping children reach their full potential and foster their love of learning.

Our Primary program is for children ages three to six years old working and learning together in the same classroom. We provide each student a personalized learning experience in an environment that is not only beautiful, but ready for each student to become independent, confident, compassionate and engaged learners. Our teachers have all received a Montessori credential from accredited teacher training centers and are passionate about guiding children to be contributing members of our community.

We also offer Parent Education courses such as “Parenting the Positive Discipline Way”, “Math, the Montessori Way”, “Montessori At Home”, and many more opportunities for the whole family in order to build a strong family-school partnership in order to best serve the needs of each student. We bring families together for social events and we have built an incredible community at Southwest Montessori Academy that the pages of our website can only begin to capture.

The decision of your child’s education is an important one. I encourage you spend time with us and see what Southwest Montessori Academy can do to help your child grow and flourish.

Warm Regards,

Vyju Kadambi
