Little Stars Montessori!
Your number 1 child care center providing children with resources to enhance both educational and social development .
Little Stars Montessori was established in 2001, teaching children ages 2 ½ - 5 years old. In May of 2008, we relocated to a bigger facility at our present location on 185th Ave. to cater to more students and their families. Most recently, in September of 2014, we expanded and opened a brand new set of classrooms to our growing school!
Currently we are enrolling children ages six weeks – 12 years.
“Education is a natural process carried out by the human individual, and is acquired not by listening to words, but by experiences in the environment.”
