image/Title - Welcome to South Riding Montessori Center

Our mission is to honor the Imagination, Mind and Heart of each child. Guided by the work of Maria Montessori, we create an environment where children are inspired to realize their academic, personal and social potential. We provide a rich and broad-based curriculum which challenges the children academically as they work independently and collaboratively in our classrooms. Together, our teachers, directors, and administration share a common vision - The vision to offer an opportunity for children to become independent, confident, competent individuals who will lead our world into the future. At South Riding Montessori Center, we will make every effort in helping young minds grow.
