In a world of rapid change and new discoveries, we can only guess at the skills our children will need to succeed in the 21st century. This rapid change has prompted education programs to focus on the essential lesson of learning how to learn. Children will need to love learning and have the creativity to apply their understanding in many different situations. Our goal is to nurture your child's intelligence, self-confidence, personal creativity and independence, and to help them come to love learning as they begin to discover their true potential during the most important years of their education. Our slogan, “Shining Light on life building experiences!”, states our desire to create an environment full of experiences to help children develop in ways God has created them. Abner Montessori School offers students a world-class education based on the Montessori approach to learning by building on the understanding that children learn most effectively through direct experience and the process of investigation and discovery.

Make an informed decision about your child’s care and education. Accept our invitation to visit our school and observe a working classroom. Tours are given Monday-Friday between 8:30 - 11:00.

  • Pre-Primary: Age 2-3

    Abner Montessori School's Pre-Primary program offers children who are age two by September 1st a wonderful environment designed to encourage their investigative nature with opportunities to explore, move, and manipulate materials with purposeful intent. Montessori recognized that when a child's mind is exposed to a rich and stimulating environment during this period, the brain will literally develop a much stronger and lasting ability to learn and accomplish.

  • Primary: Age 3 - 6

    Dr. Montessori discovered long ago that the child under the age of six has a miraculous ability to absorb their world around them. She called this special mind the "Absorbent Mind." The young child can absorb language, perfect movement and internalize order. Never will these sensitivities and abilities be more alive than in the early years of life.

How did our school get the name "Abner"?

The name Abner comes from the Old Testament in the Bible. In First and Second Samuel you will find that Abner was the chief officer of Saul's army. He was also present when David fought and defeated the giant Philistine warrior, Goliath. The name Abner means, "My father is a lamp." The name Abner provides the vision of a path being lit on a journey. We want to partner with you as we light the path for your child on their journey through the early education years. We use the sun (a source of light) in our logo and have adopted the slogan, "Shining Light on Life Building Experiences." We hope to be a source of light in the development of your child.
