Come and visit us
We are your neighborhood
We've been in west Cary, NC since 2009 and we love it here! We are passionate about early childhood and even more passionate about using Montessori principles to create the optimal learning environment for your child.
Come visit us and see how we can serve your family.
"We love Trillium Montessori. We’ve been very happy with our daughter’s progress. She’s learning and experiencing wonderful things like grace and courtesy, friendships, as well as the academic things. She’s hitting milestones in her reading and math. We love it! We would highly recommend it. We’re very happy there!"
"I think the teachers that we’ve had here are just wonderful. We wouldn’t ask for anything different. We are very very fortunate with what we’ve been able to have here at Trillium."
"We are so lucky that we found Trillium Montessori. We moved recently from Spain and when we first came here, Laura hardly spoke any English. 8 months later not only can she speak English but she’s beginning to read short sentences now and she’s ready for Kindergarten… She really found herself at Trillium."
We are a Montessori school. This means we value the unique pace of your child's development. We use specialized Montessori materials to provide the right activities for your child at the right time. We know we're getting it right when we observe three core behaviors in your child: concentration, independence, and joy.
Our teachers are Montessori professionals. All of our staff have 4-year college degrees or higher. Our lead teachers have Montessori credentials from the American Montessori Society and years of experience working with young children.
We value our relationship with you, the parent, as much as we value our relationship with your child. The parent-teacher connection is the foundation upon which a successful school experience is built. We love being a small school so we can get to know you well!
We have a holistic curriculum, designed to flex with your child's needs and pace of development. In addition to readin', 'ritin' and 'rithmetic, all of which are taught in a developmentally appropriate way, we also emphasize social skills, leadership, independence, motor coordination, self awareness and control, and overall peaceful living.
Our classroom is a peaceful, attractive space, organized for the needs of your preschool aged child. Montessori activities are laid out on accessible shelves. Children are free to move about the room as they desire, selecting activities that are of interest to them, working with others or by themselves if they prefer.
We are conveniently located in the heart of Cary Park. We are in the shopping center at the corner of Green Level Church Road and Carpenter Firestation Road. Many of our families walk to school in good weather. On cold days, we are just a couple of minutes away by car. Our preschool is easily accessible from Morrisville and Apex.
