Discover how our approach to developing your child's natural curiosity can inspire a life-long love of learning.

Why Springs East?

We're one of the only schools in the tri-state area using authentic Montessori curriculum and following the true Montessori Method.


Your student will learn at their own pace, build confidence through working independently, enjoy an environment that encourages empathy, and develop a true joy in life-long learning.

Students who begin their learning journey with us go on to live lives filled with confidence, dignity, and compassion for others. They remain committed to making positive contributions to the world by building legacies filled with kindness, understanding, and acceptance.

Our Programs

No matter your child's needs, one of our programs will provide the stimulation, interaction, and support necessary to encourage endless curiosity.

Kids at Playground

Montessori Programs

We offer both half- and full-day schooling options for children 2-8 years old. Our non-secular, coeducational approach encourages each student to discover and develop their unique talents and possibilities.

Summer Programs

Our summer programs take our hands-on approach to discovery and learning outdoors. No need for your kids to suffer from a 'summer slump.' We keep them learning and exploring all summer long.
