An Ancillae-Assumpta Academy education begins in our Montessori program.

The Stepping Stones into Montessori, Montessori Preschool, and Kindergarten programs each offer a curriculum that fosters the developmental milestones of the child from 2 ½ through 6 years of age. These programs bring to life the Montessori philosophy in carefully prepared environments to nurture the growth of each individual child.  Concrete hands-on experiences challenge the child’s natural curiosity to learn and explore while fostering the development of the whole child. The structure of the room and the sequence of materials support the child’s desire for independence and the developing sense of order and concentration. Respect for and care of all things is central to our classroom community.  Learn more about our Montessori curriculum.


There are many reasons to begin your child's AAA experience in our early childhood programs....

  • individual pacing of academics
  • challenging goals
  • repetition for a strong foundation
  • development of a sense of order
  •  increased concentration
  •  physical education and movement activities
  • art appreciation and  music with certified teachers
  • world cultures
  • hands-on experiences
  • strong family and school connection
  • continuous education through grade eight
  • an education with love and for love


The Academy offers several options to meet your family’s need for early education.

Our Stepping Stones into Montessori program offers a three or five day program with  full or half day options.  Our Montessori Preschool is a five day program with half or full day options.  The Preschool level is mixed ages including the Pre-K year. Children attending our preschool for 2-3 years before moving onto our K program have options to begin in our Stepping Stones program before their Pre-K year or to begin right away in our Preschool.  The Stepping Stones into Montessori program is designed especially as a child’s first preschool experience which fosters being part of a school community.   Students should be potty-trained before entering our programs.
