Montessori Education

"The goal of early childhood education should be to activate the child's own natural desire to learn" ~ Maria Montessori


ACS Montessori, located on Highland Road in South Baton Rouge, was established in 1998 with only three students.  From our humble beginnings, we have grown to a full capacity serving 40 students.  We've chosen to remain a small school, deeply rooted in Dr. Montessori's philosophy.

Montessori is a method of education named after Dr. Maria Montessori.  She believed that education should prepare a person for all aspects of life.  She designed materials and techniques that would promote a natural growth of learning in students.

Our invitation to you . . .
The best way to experience the Montessori method is to come and observe our classrooms firsthand.  Experience for yourself how the classroom is a carefully prepared environment where children move freely and select work that captures their interest.  Observe how the children learn from one another in a diverse, mixed-age classroom.  Please call us to schedule an appointment.

We look forward to meeting you!

Monica Fernandez:

ACS is definitely a hidden gem and we were so blessed to have found as they have made a huge impact on my granddaughter's life and ours. She is thriving in all aspects of learning and life which she continues to amaze us every day. ACS is a very loving environment and they are very engaged with every child, their needs including their families that walk through their door. You become part of the ACS family and the ACS family becomes part of yours.

Audrey started ACS at 2.5 years. We knew she needed an environment which would allow her to grow socially, academically, and individually. It took very little time for us to start seeing subtle, positive changes in Audrey. ACS taught her, in a safe, nurturing environment, the importance of choices and the responsibilities that come along with each decision. Her father and I watched as she continued to grow over the next 3 years. Audrey has now transitioned to Kindergarten and we continue to be amazed with her abilities. Everyone misses ACS in our house and we all look forward to the day Audrey's sibling will start their journey with the great staff of this school.
