Our School

Smart Start Montessori was founded by Ibrahim and Meluri Meru in July 2000. Meluri is AMI trained with many years of experience in the field of education and committed to the Montessori philosophy of education. The school opened its doors with a class of five children, and has grown to the current licensed capacity.
The key to a good educational program is the Montessori Directress, who is the link between the prepared Montessori environment and the child. Smart Start Montessori School prides itself on hiring quality teachers who not only provide your child with a good education but are also excellent role models. The teachers help to nurture good work habits, self worth, independence and leadership.

What makes
Smart Start Montessori School unique?

Visitors to Smart Start Montessori often comment that the school has a "special feeling" - warm, friendly, and almost magical. Children who come do not want to leave!

In our classrooms, children are excited about learning, involved in projects and activities, and eager to share their achievements. They are drawn to learning by creative teaching and unique materials.

Smart Start Montessori teachers empower students based on their respect for each child as a unique individual. They observe the children carefully, follow their lead, and give them the tools needed to develop their strengths as well as the courage to master challenges.

You, as parents, are an integral part of your child's circle of support. You work with us to help your children become self-confident, independent thinkers interested in the world and enthusiastic about life.

We hope you will accept our invitation to visit, observe the school children at work and play, and see for yourself what makes Smart Start Montessori School special.
