Montessori Kids Universe Ashburn

At MKU Ashburn, we believe that learning is a journey. Our goal is to develop independent thinkers who thrive academically.

At Montessori Kids Universe Ashburn, we believe that learning is a journey. Our goal is to develop independent thinkers who embrace community responsibility, leadership, and thrive academically. Many preschools offer academic or even "Montessori" programs. At Montessori Kids Universe Ashburn, we offer a classic Montessori education enhanced with a Reggio Emilia inspired art and science enrichment experience.

Mission: We understand what matters most to you. Our school is so much more than merely a place where your child has the opportunity to learn and grow. We strive to not only be the BEST in early childhood education; but to care for, nurture, and inspire your child while providing a unique community we like to call the Montessori Kids Universe family.

AT MKU, children learn through authentic Montessori lessons. They discover how things work, and how to respect themselves, others, and their environment.

The lessons learned (or more accurately put, discovered) include not only academic subjects, but emphasize organization, respect, and allow children a better opportunity to learn from, and teach one another. Visit www.montessorikidsuniverse.com/ashburn to learn more about what we have to offer!

Dr. Montessori believed that children have a natural inclination to learn. This is evident in our classrooms!

A Montessori education gives your child skills they can use for a lifetime! www.montessorikidsuniverse.com/ashburn
