Our family highly recommends Quality Interactive Montessori - Spur Cross Elementary. When you hear the phrases 'learn at your own pace', '- be yourself - accepted for who you are', and 'kindness and mindfulness' just to list a few are all TRUE at this school. We love the lesson plans and how the teachers teach. It is a learning environment comfortable for children to learn from and with each other. We are thankful for Quality Interactive Montessori Elementary everyday!

We love QI Montessori on Spur Cross Road! The Montessori philosophy is alive and well here. My daughter attended Spanish Immersion Preschool with Miss Clarissa for two years, then went on to Kindergarten with Miss Doris, both of whom she adores. She just entered 1st Grade (Lower Elementary includes 1st - 3rd graders learning together). The environment is one of calm and is nourishing to her heart, mind, body, and spirit. Her Iowa Testing Scores, taken during Kindergarten, ranked her equivalent to a 1st grader in the 7th month of learning. She has grown mentally, physically, emotionally, and in her relationships with her classmates and teachers. We highly recommend Quality Interactive Montessori!

This is our second year at QI Montessori and we couldn’t be happier. Ms. Sigrid, Ms. Krista and Ms. Jen are an excellent team and are like family now. We are so thankful our daughter has been able spend her pre-school years here! Regarding the one negative review, we’ve had our daughter with Sigrid and Krista for 1.5 years and we have never experienced any favoritism in regards to Krista’s daughter. Krista is an amazing and dedicated teacher and we feel blessed that she is a part of the team at QI

My granddaughter has been attending QI for 6 years and I’ll tell you right now this has really opened my eyes to the difference between public school and Montessori education . If I had young ones still this would be a no brainer to enroll with QI Montessori . My granddaughter is so well educated at 6 years old , very independent and confidant in who she is . She is so much more advanced than most kids her ago in reading ams math . I have gone to school activities and seen for myself how and what they teach and it’s AMAZING how the kids respond and are happy to be at school . Besides the educational benefits , the kids also learn independent thinking , like skills , QI also provides a safe and caring environment . I can’t say enough positive things about the school , the teachers and environment there .

Center Director

Meet Our Director

As the director of Quality Interactive Montessori School, it is my joy to provide education to children in our community, from toddlers all the way up to 8th grade. My educational background is in early childhood, special education, and Montessori credentials for primary ages 3-5. I graduated from GCU with a Bachelor of Science in Behavioral Health Studies with an additional emphasis on childhood disorders and trauma and I am excited to continue my journey at GCU working towards a Masters in Mental Health Counseling. My passion for education continues to grow each year I work in the field. The most exciting part of education for me is watching the continuous brain development throughout the students’ various stages of development. The Montessori curriculum has always been a part of my teaching style as it allows for each child to grow and learn at their own pace to be able to flourish in their academic success.

“Education is a natural process carried out by the child and is not acquired by listening to but by experiences in the environment”. – Dr. Maria Montessori


Choosing a Montessori environment for your child has many benefits. Known for individually paced learning and fostering independence, the Montessori Method also encourages empathy, a passion for social justice, and a joy in lifelong learning. Given the freedom and support to question, probe deeply, and make connections, Montessori students grow up to be confident, enthusiastic, and self-directed learners and citizens, accountable to both themselves and their community. They think critically, work collaboratively, and act boldly and with integrity. Learn more about our programs below:

Infants and Toddlers: (Ages 6 weeks- 3 years)

Montessori Infant & Toddler programs lay the foundation for lifelong learning by nurturing your child’s curiosity, self-confidence, and intrinsic desire to learn from birth. A Montessori environment offers so much more than childcare for the youngest learners.

Montessori Infant & Toddler programs offer a curriculum that emerges from each child’s unique skills and interests. Based on daily observations, teachers introduce new materials and activities that pique curiosity and stimulate learning. Learning objectives for your child at this age include developing skills such as language, concentration, problem solving, visual discrimination, and physical coordination.

Preschool (early childhood) ages 3-6

Montessori education is student-led and self-paced but guided, assessed, and enriched by knowledgeable and caring teachers, the leadership of their peers, and a nurturing environment.

Within the community of a multi-age classroom—designed to create natural opportunities for independence, citizenship, and accountability—children embrace multi-sensory learning and passionate inquiry. Individual students follow their own curiosity at their own pace, taking the time they need to fully understand each concept and meet individualized learning goals.

Kindergarteners are introduced to progressively more advanced Montessori materials and sophisticated, fascinating lessons. They experience an important period in which their previous learning from working with concrete Montessori materials begins to become permanent knowledge. A Montessori Kindergarten student sees and feels their personal growth as they watch others learn information, they have mastered themselves.

Kindergarten is the culmination of the Early Childhood program. Children exhibit the independence, critical thinking, collaboration, and leadership that they have been practicing during their previous years in the Early Childhood classroom, exercising them independently at their own pace, as they prepare to transition into an Elementary program.
