Welcome! We love what we do and we’re so glad you’re here!

Established in 2007, we’re the first and only accredited Montessori School in South Dakota. We started with the idea of offering this 100 year old approach to the community and thirteen years later, we like to think that we’re just getting started.

Here’s a quick video that tells our story:

If you’re interested in learning more about the ins-and-outs of the school, the FAQ Page is a good place to start.

We currently offer two programs — Primary, for children 2.5-6 years, and Toddler, for children 18 months to 3 years.


Our school is unique in this community, so if you think you might be interested in this education for your child, we’d love to set up a time to meet!

You can inquire now.

We’re also pretty active on social media, writing regularly on the blog, producing podcasts, and sending out a bimonthly newsletter.

We like to say around here, we’re always learning!

We think Montessori is bigger than the classroom, bigger than just for young children, bigger than any of us, and we love sharing this philosophy.

Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Instagram for regular updates, and subscribe to the Zine for new content delivered straight to your inbox twice a month.

Whatever brings you here, we’d love to be in touch. Send us a note, and tell us what’s on your mind, how we can help, or content you’d like to see.

Until soon!
