Welcome to HeadsUp! Montessori Preschool
Over 35 Years in Education
The result is an eclectic approach to early learning, borrowing from the best model programs and making use of the most recent educational research. Our foundation is found in the time-tested principles established by Maria Montessori, enriched by modern materials designed to address the needs of people in the twenty-first century. Because the program is based on results, we are not distracted by the latest educational fads, but we are willing to try new approaches. As such, we–like our clients–are always learning and growing.
Pioneering and Practical Philosophy
We are guided by our HeadsUp!® Approach to learning, a bold, yet common-sense foundation for all of our activities.
We follow a defined curriculum that is an eclectic blend of classical roots and modern enhancements, with an advanced assessment system that focuses on what children can do, not what they can memorize.
High Quality Staff
We employ and retain well-educated, highly motivated professional teachers with a passion for their field, and we provide the training, support, and supervision necessary to mold them into amazing educators.
From our roots as a parent education organization, we continue to work to build parental skills and knowledge through individual daily notes home, semi-annual parent conferences, monthly parent general education meetings, and group lectures and workshops.
Firm and Flexible Management
Our standards, policies, procedures, communications, and administrative controls are founded on sound business practices and 30 years of experience serving our clientele in a courteous, yet responsible manner.
