Montessori offers an unparalleled educational experience that allows children to develop their whole person—intellectually, physically, and spiritually. More than just an alternative to traditional daycare and preschools, we believe that a Montessori education provides the ideal environment for students to come to know themselves, the world, and ultimately their place in it.
The SMLA staff are blessed with a professional, caring group of educators dedicated to helping each child develop to their full potential. Director/Lead Teacher Christy Brewster has over 20 years of experience in teaching using the Montessori Method. Assistant Teacher Brandee Miller is a full-time BGSU student majoring in Allied Health. Assistant Teacher Laura Drewes is a graduate of BGSU and has spent her career in activities planning for holistic life-long learning.
The SMLA is open year-round with weekday hours from 7:30 am – 5:30 pm. The preschool portion of the day begins, and 8:30 am and ends at 3:30 pm. Before and after school care is provided for families at no extra charge. For 2022, SMLA is accepting students. We offer childcare that includes nap time, assistance with potty training, specialized and prescribed exercises/treatments, exercise/recess, or other special needs that your child may require.
