Village Gate Children's Academy is a private school with Kindergarten, Elementary and Middle School Programs based on the teachings and philosophy of Maria Montessori. Our extensive experience and knowledge of the elementary-aged child, allows us to create a learning environment that sparks the child's imagination and fosters their innate love of learning. Our programs are designed to optimize the individual learning styles and needs of our students by creating individual lesson plans and an environment filled with materials and learning opportunities. Our classrooms are a beautiful balance of individual activities and the cultivation of a classroom community.
Although, we relate to each child as an individual, we remain committed to ensuring state and national academic standards are met. Our curriculum is rich in Mathematics, Language, Culture & Geography, Science, Botany & Zoology and History. In addition, we offer art, music and technology with a physical education that includes weekly swimming & yoga.
We believe that partnership is vital to a successful learning environment. Partnership between home & school, between teacher & student and amongst our students. We believe that a common language between home & school with regards to discipline and problem solving is important. Therefore, our school follows the Redirecting Children's Behavior model of discipline and we ask our families to do the same.

This community runs deeply throughout the school and is one with a common goal... a goal to provide the best possible environment for our students to be able to grow and continue to develop their sense of themselves & the world around them. It's true that it does take "a village to raise a child". Village Gate Children's Academy embraces that notion and lives it as a core belief and value.
