Quality, Authentic Montessori with a Local Edge.

Love of Learning

Every moment of a child’s life is a new page, an opportunity to engage and explore. At the Suzuki School, we encourage the development of an inquisitive mind and noble heart by providing an environment carefully crafted to nurture these formative years.

Noble Heart

Our heart is in the details. We embrace and share a beautiful environment. Each building is designed to cultivate serenity. Every hallway, classroom, and office utilizes color, texture and sensory exploration so that each day presents an aesthetically pleasing environment with always something new to explore.

Culture & Tradition

We delve deep into the world through artistry, encouraging projects inspired by the great artists from history and the present while presenting children with unique aural, spoken and visual demonstrations to inspire: music, puppet shows, folktales, exotic animal shows, and much more are invited to each campus – guaranteed to spark an interest in the world which exists beyond home.

Respect for Nature

Like an evergreen, our leaves don’t fall as the seasons change. Our core Montessori curriculum instead grows and expands with the child, reaching towards the sunlight in new and exciting ways in each lesson. Premium Services, such as our Developmental Specialist, On-Site Nurse, and constant professional development team ensure that we grow each day with the children.

music
Talent Education

There is always a new song to heard in our hallways. We provide year-round music instruction – including specialized courses in Piano, Violin, and other campus-specific experiences – designed to emphasize rhythm, confidence through singing and performance, reading, collaboration, and fine motor control through learning new instruments.

The Suzuki School is committed to the wholesome development of your child. Our culture of growth, passion and dedication is devoted to infant and early childhood education.

“The child has a different relation to his environment from ours… the child absorbs it. The things he sees are not just remembered; they form part of his soul.”
