Fostering the Joy of Learning
for preschoolers & toddlers
The Montessori Academy in Lafayette, CO is an early childhood center offering a Montessori program in which children are respected as individuals and are encouraged to develop their total personality at their own pace and within their individual growth styles, laying the foundation for a lifetime of creative learning. Our preschool accepts potty-trained children between the ages of 2 1/2 and 6. Our toddler classroom accepts children between the ages of 1 and 3.
We are full members of the American Montessori Society and are licensed by the Colorado Department of Social Services.

What Our Parents Say:
"Both of my daughters have been attending this school ever since we moved to the area. The staff are wonderful. My older daughter is already reading, writing, and learning addition and multiplication. And she won't start kindergarten until next year. Plus, they enjoy the school so much it is often difficult to convince them to leave. The kids sign and do projects. I am a big fan of Montessori and this place really executes the method very well." -MA parent
"The school is a wonderful, safe place for kids to learn. My kids attended MA and have a much better, richer appreciation for learning because of this school, the owner, Ms. Jean and the staff." -N.B.School Calendar
