Every parent wants the best for their baby, that’s a given. You have a vision of a clean, germ-free preschool that will set your child up for success for life. That’s what your child deserves! And that’s what your child will get with us!
Here, at STEM Montessori Academy of Hillsborough we raise the bar! We follow Montessori Method. That means that we have mixed-age classrooms, hands-on learning and real Montessori materials. But that’s not all! We center our teaching around your child’s individual needs. Every lesson plan is for your child only, not the entire class! After all, we all have our own unique quirks and talents. Why not use those to our advantage in the classroom? With us, your baby will love school and learning and will be set on her educational journey for life!
Why we are different?
When your baby wakes up in the morning and can’t wait to go to school, talking up a storm about her plans for her exciting art project that she needs to finish with her friends, you know you have found the right school!
In our school STEM and Montessori have come together to create excitement and love of everything that we do.
Our art program:
- Fosters creativity
- Allows children to follow their imagination
- Engages students in educational and fun projects
We believe that
- There is no wrong way to create art
- Art builds the brain
- Creative freedom is the key to the long-term success
We go outside every day to learn! In our outdoor classroom, we focus on nature exploration, gardening and movement. We grow our own herbs and vegetables and enjoy them at meal times. Our farm-to-table program brings the outdoor learning to the meal times. We love our veggies!

“We were coming from a bad daycare situation so I was extra critical when touring new schools. From the initial meeting to now being there for a few months the teachers, director and owner are so friendly, creative and most importantly so kind and loving with the children. I cannot explain what a great feeling it is to leave my sons at a place where I don’t have to worry about if they are being taken care of. They also offer hot lunches everyday which is a big help! The school is very clean and my sons are learning a lot each day. It is a great school and I’m very happy we found it” – Kelly
“The art curriculum is incredible! Both of my kids have attended for a week so far and I have nothing but good things to say. After one day there, my older one, who normally thinks that arts and crafts are boring, made me go to Michael’s to pick up supplies, so he can paint and make clay art. He spent hours on this, which is so unusual for him. The art teacher is very inspiring!
The school also provides hot lunches, which is a huge huge plus in my book, as I don’t have to pack it! Both of my kids have multiple food restrictions due to allergies that the school was able to accommodate. Any school or camp that does that is worth its weight in gold in my opinion – families with allergies will know what I mean!!” – Rimma
“From the moment my son and I stepped inside the school, it felt like home away from home. We were greeted by the wonderful staff and were offered a tour. I was very pleased with the cleanliness of this new facility. We met with teachers and toured the classroom where my son would stay for a few hours on his first day. He was drawn to the new toys and started to explore right away. During circle time he learned a new letter, then went over to the play area , and did a few projects in the art room. The teachers are caring, upbeat, knowledgeable and approachable. I was able to stay and watch my little one being engulfed by all the new experiences, and endless possibilities for the education through play. I would highly recommend this school to any parents.” – Marina
“This school is amazing! I had my son in 3 other daycares before I found this one. The owner is very helpful and accommodating she goes above and beyond to help make this place run smoothly. The staff are great too, they really care about the kids. Since day one I never questioned the level of care or attention he was receiving, they are attentive and compassionate towards each kid. There is no other place I would want my son to go to.” – Rasheeda
“teachers are very patient and loving . Love the Montessori way of teaching . My son loves going to school every day .” – Gauri
“Welcoming place and nice staff. My daughter looks forward to go to school even on a holiday. What can I say more!! Next place to home and I am happy choosing this place. Thanks Elina and team for giving the best, safe and nurturing environment for the future super heroes!!” – Ranjit
