Alcott School was founded in 1968, and has an outstanding history of providing high-quality early educational experiences for all young children in a Montessori environment. Our certified and experienced staff provide a responsive and engaging curriculum to meet the developmental needs of the children and foster their social emotional skills in a diverse nurturing environment.
