Journey Montessori is a small, multi-aged, Montessori preschool.  The school houses one classroom with under twenty children, one teacher, and one assistant teacher.  Journey Montessori is open Monday-Friday, 8:30-12:30 following a traditional academic calendar year.  Children are eligible to attend Journey Montessori between the ages of three and five years old.

Director Laura Self opened the school in fall of 2008. Mrs. Self is a former traditional elementary  school teacher who discovered the Montessori method of teaching after searching for a preschool home for her own daughter. After becoming hooked on the Montessori philosophy and method of teaching, she earned her Montessori certification by studying and interning at Park Road Montessori in Charlotte.

Journey Montessori is dedicated to implementing Dr. Maria Montessori’s method of developing the whole child through use of specialized Montessori materials. The classroom is fully equipped for study in the areas of Practical Life, Sensorial, Math, Language, as well as Art, Geography, Science and Humanities.
