Our Approach

Montessori Education, pioneered by Dr. Maria Montessori, celebrates the innate curiosity of children and recognizes their unique developmental paths.

This renowned approach has garnered global recognition, endorsed by influential figures such as Larry Page and Sergey Brin (founders of Google), Yo-Yo Ma, and Katherine Graham.

What Parents Think

"My daughter started CMSoG a few days before she turned 3 and will be leaving to kindergarten this fall. When I dropped her off on her first day of school, my child did not speak a word of English and had never been cared for outside the house. Ms. Julie took her in with such confidence and nurture that I knew we had made the right choice. Fast forward 2.5 years and Ms. Julie has taught that child not only how to speak English but also how to read and write! At 4 she began to teach her sight words and by the time she turned 5, she was able to read on her own."
