Excelled Montessori Plus - the premier preschool choice for parents

Why Us?

What Makes an ExcellED School?

It’s not the state-of-the-art facilities and technology. It’s not the carefully curated curriculum nor the renowned Montessori materials. Behind every decision and component are days, minutes, hours, and years of reflection, analysis, and collaboration of educational experiences. It’s the totality of every ounce of passion we invest in creating, refining, and delivering the finest personalized instruction in our programs. Our commitment to academic excellence through an individualized design fuels our kindergarten graduates for one outcome: “ExcellED.”

This is our heartbeat 💓, and this is our song 🎶.

This is what makes us who we are.

Inquiry based learning in the classroom

Inquiry-based learning is a teaching approach that focuses on engaging students in hands-on, interactive, and collaborative activities that allow them to explore and investigate real-world problems and questions. It is based on the idea that learning is an active process and that students are more likely to retain and understand new information when actively discovering and exploring it for themselves.

Curiosity is the Key: Inspiring Inquiry-Based Learning in the Classroom

Outdoor Learning

The traditional idea of a classroom is a room filled with desks, a chalkboard, and a teacher leading a lesson. However, the truth is that learning can happen in many different places, and not all classrooms have four walls. In today’s world, students have countless opportunities to learn outside of traditional classrooms. Here are a few examples of alternative learning environments: Nature, Museums, Online learning, Service learning, and Travel.

ExcellED teachers will frequently use the outdoor space for instructional purposes. 

The Magic of Montessori - the invisible teachers

The term “invisible teacher” might sound mysterious or counterintuitive, but it’s quite simple. In Montessori classrooms, the invisible teacher refers to the carefully prepared environment and the indirect guidance the Montessori educator provides. This environment and guidance enable children to learn through discovery and exploration without an adult constantly dictating their actions.

The greatest teacher is the one who inspires us to learn, even when they’re not in the room. It’s not about seeing the teacher but about feeling their impact on a student’s life. Read More

HeART and Science of Teaching

Caring teachers are essential to the success of our classrooms. They create a sense of safety, encourage exploration, support social-emotional development, foster a love of learning, and build strong relationships with their students and families. By prioritizing caring and supportive teaching practices, our educators can help students academically and personally thrive. Read More

Our Staff

Teaching is both an art and science – the art of creating the conditions in which students can learn most effectively using the scientific methods of teaching. Teachers play vital roles in the lives of the students in their classrooms as mentors, coaches, guides, encouragers, and leaders. We are a group of teachers, administrators, and educators who are passionate about creating a safe, enriching environment that fosters creativity through investigations.
