Welcome! We thank you for your interest in Aidan.

Since its founding in 1961, Aidan has been committed to the philosophy and pedagogy of Dr. Maria Montessori. Aidan's Montessori approach begins with a deep respect for children as individuals and focuses on their whole development to aid them in becoming independent, self-motivated, and contributing members of the world community. Aidan Montessori School is recognized by the Association Montessori Internationale/USA (AMI/USA) for all developmental levels.

We know that finding the right school for your family can be a daunting task. We at Aidan are committed to supporting you through this process with clear information and prompt answers to your questions so that you can make an informed decision. 

Contact us to attend an Open House or schedule a school visit! We look forward to meeting you in person and thank you for the opportunity to get to know you and introduce you to Aidan.

Best Regards,


Japera Walker Wilkison
