Wow! There are so many good things I can say about this school. As someone who grew up going to Montessori schools, I stand behind the value of Quality Interactive Montessori School. A friend of mine has a daughter who attended this school and I went with her a few times to the school as well as their many activities that they host throughout the year. I was so amazed by the kind and welcoming atmosphere of this school as well as the teachers. The amount of time and effort they put into each individual child is astounding and so admirable. It’s so important to chose a school that prioritizes not only the success but the wellbeing and the safety of our children. As well as understands the importance of self development and building character in children and I can honestly say this school absolutely exceeds expectations on that. Great job you guys, keep up the hard work & we appreciate all that you do!

I can’t say enough about how wonderful Quality Interactive was for our daughter. We enrolled our daughter to begin at Quality Montessori upon returning to work after maternity leave. It was such a difficult transition made so much easier due to the amazing teachers in the infant program. Our daughter was constantly looked after and cared for - it wasn’t long until she burst out in to the biggest smile the second she saw her teachers every morning. If you’re looking for a school, look no further than Quality Interactive. You are in the best hands.

It is really a blessing that my sister found this Montessori school for my nieces, who are very shy. In no time at all it has been nice to see that they both were able to come out of their shells. I truly believe it is due to the homey environment and very caring staff. I am more than happy to listen to the girls tell me all the things they have learned about in school every day. Not only that, but I am also pleasantly surprised by how much their reading and comprehending skills have grown, as they are only in preschool. Thank you Quality Interactive Montessori, you have already made a positive impact on their lives.

We LOVE Quality Interactive Montessori. Our daughter has been going to the 56th street location for almost 3 years. Pam is an excellent leader and has built an amazing school with an exceptional staff. Our daughter has grown so much in the time that she has been at QI. She loves going everyday and has built so many friendships. We can't thank Pam, Ms. Patty, Ms. Amy and the rest of the staff for all that they do for our daughter. I HIGHLY recommend QI!

Center Director

Meet Our Director

After finding QI Montessori for her son when he was 2, Ms. Kathy developed a love for The Montessori Method. Professionally, Ms. Kathy was an event and wedding planner in the AZ private country club industry before staying home to raise her son. After 4 years as a stay-at-home mother, she decided The Montessori Method was a compelling reason for a career change from event and wedding planner to an educator. Upon completing her Montessori training in Las Vegas, she became the lead teacher in the Ocean Room. She has continued growing at QI Montessori and is currently the school director. Ms. Kathy has been with QI Montessori since 2007. 

Ms. Kathy has been married to her husband Paul for 25 years, has one son, Brandon who is 18 and two furry babies; Cedric and Nina. In her downtime, she loves to read, cook and host dinner parties.

Ms. Kathy’s views on what benefits a Montessori education offers a child:

“I believe Montessori education benefits children in many ways. A Montessori education addresses the whole child: his physical, social, emotion and cognitive growth. As both a parent of a former Montessori student and an educator, one of the most important benefits is that a Montessori education recognizes is that children learn in different ways, and accommodates all learning styles. Students are also free to learn at their own pace, each advancing through the curriculum as he is ready, guided by the teacher and an individualized learning plan. It is through this freedom that the child will develop a lifelong love of learning.” – Ms. Kathy

Programs

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 months- 3)

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.

Kindergarten

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.
