NFA's Montessori program offers a hands-on, individually paced learning experience in a multi-age classroom environment.

The teacher facilitates learning by connecting each child with specifically designed materials and carefully selected exercises, moving from the simple and concrete to the complex and abstract. In Montessori, children choose their own work, resulting in self-motivated growth. NFA and our Montessori teachers are fully certified by the American Montessori Society (AMS).

Our preschoolers joyfully and actively engage in a three-year curriculum with the same teacher built around their natural physical, emotional, social, and intellectual development. Students develop independence, self-care, self-awareness, grace, and courtesy as they learn at their own pace, work cooperatively with each other, and mentor each other.
