Welcome! We thank you for your interest in admission at Aidan.

We also understand the importance in finding the right environment and best educational experience for your child’s personal growth and development, and look forward to helping you learn more about Aidan as you consider us in your search.

Since 1961, Aidan has fully embraced the philosophy and pedagogy of Dr. Maria Montessori. We are proud to be recognized and accredited by the Association Montessori International (AMI) for all academic levels: Toddler, Primary and Elementary. Serving children ages 18 months of age to 6th grade, Aidan begins with a deep respect for children as unique individuals and focuses on their whole development to become independent, self-motivated, and contributing members of the world community.

We invite you to explore our website, attend an Open House, and tour our school, and we are happy to answer any questions you may have. 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,

Grace Lee
