Early Childhood preschool program paused for 2020-2021

We are in unprecedented times and with the current Covid-19 situation, we may need to be prepared to dismiss school again in the future. Since this is difficult with a tuition based program, MMA feels it best to pause The HOUSE of Children (ages 3-5 yrs) for the upcoming year.


Our incoming director, Mr. Hirokawa has assured us that he is in support of having an Early Childhood program be a permanent part of Maria Montessori Academy and it will return in the future.
