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.
