Daycare – Your Child Deserves the Best
Inner smile Montessori is guided by a respectful Montessori philosophy. Our long-term goal is to give children the tools to create a better and brighter world. We provide loving, intentional, supportive care and seek to be a welcoming and helpful part of the community. We believe that children learn best through experiences that interest them, and that in a prepared environment they will choose activities best suited their developmental needs.
We encourage children to creatively explore, and know that they’re being respected as equal individuals with their own preferences, personalities and perspectives.
We strongly encourage social/emotional learning, healthy lifestyles, healthy eating habits, and connection to nature and the outdoors.
