Our school year is in full swing at HMS! Our preschoolers and kindergartners are immersed in nature and surrounded by beautiful objects and materials that inspire them to create and learn about the world around them.

Despite the heat, our garden is going strong! In addition to cantaloupe and Armenian cucumbers, we have pumpkins, figs, grapes and guavas producing fruit. The garden is a truly magical place with unlimited learning opportunities. Come see how we grow at HMS!

We’re so excited that spring has arrived and our garden is flourishing! Our students helped us plant all the seeds for the food you see growing here (except the strawberries, they’re transplants). We’ve already harvested some sugar snap peas, romaine and Bibb lettuce and strawberries. They were so delicious! We also planted rainbow carrots, watermelon, cantaloupe, pumpkins, corn, kale, cauliflower, broccoli, spinach, and cucumbers. In addition to our garden we planted many fruit trees and vines including peach, fig, guava, apple, mulberry, pomegranate, blood orange, passion fruit, Moringa, and grape. We’re eagerly checking our garden each day and observe the many changes that occur in a short period of time. This magical place offers rich and engaging learning experiences incorporating science, math, literacy and nutrition!


A student-led exploration into ramps took a fascinating turn toward learning about chain reactions. At HMS we follow a student’s lead, providing materials and support for learners to dig deeper into their interests. We captured this amazing reaction to a simple chain reaction and it’s magical. Complete engagement and so much joy!


Did you know you can use dish soap to create dense bubbles that can be written on with dried out markers?! We just discovered this…amazing! This student is practicing writing his name. Unique and engaging learning opportunities abound at HMS!


Students in our outdoor classroom using the leaves, sticks, and other treasures in nature for their own creations. So much learning to find outside: from artistic expression to scientific inquiry and problem solving.

Exploring Rangoli, in honor of Diwali, with loose parts. Some of the creations made over the last couple of days 😍 Our students are so creative!!


Exciting progress is being made in our future edible forest! The shade structure has been a valuable addition and is protecting the young fruit trees (3 types of guava, mulberry, black fig and Saturn peach) we’ll be planting on the perimeter of the garden when the weather is cooler. We have 3 out of 4 20’ raised garden bed runs in place and soon we’ll have them fully assembled. Each run will have five planters that will be growing seasonal fruits and vegetables. Soon our kiddos will be able to forage for snacks and gain a concrete understanding of where our food comes from. More updates to come!


Future HMS mascot?? We found this tiny predator yesterday. After observing the praying mantis for a short while we placed it on one of the guava trees. Today when we arrived we noticed it’s still there! It must have felt at home and we’re hoping it chooses to stay to protect our garden. It will also offer an amazing learning experience.

We are excited to announce that Heritage Montessori School is under new ownership! The school is undergoing a complete renovation inside and out. We are adding many hands-on experiences, enhancing outdoor environments, implementing modern systems, and much more. These exciting improvements are all designed to give children even more opportunities to learn and flourish. The result will be measurable growth of the whole child: academically, socially, emotionally, and creatively. This incredible climbing structure is just one of the many additions coming to the outdoor environment. Please check out our page and website for more updates.
