Come Learn and Play With Us!
We strive to educate our students and the neighborhood of East Lake to love learning, love work, and love one another. We strive to be a cross-cultural, racially and economically diverse group that fosters integrity, independence, and hope in every child.
East Lake Montessori (ELM) is a non-profit, part-time preschool nestled in the heart of East Lake. Through its partnership with New City Fellowship Church and its proximity to East Lake Elementary, ELM has a unique opportunity to build bridges among children of all walks of life.
According to a recent study, the Montessori educational method helps to close the learning gap between children of different socio-economic backgrounds. It debunks the “zip code is destiny” assumption that has ingratiated itself within our educational system. It opens the door for sweeping social justice reform. And we see it happening everyday with our families.
East Lake Montessori exists to open doors for all children, open the hearts of our families, and open the minds of our community. ELM fosters an environment where children of all backgrounds can become friends. These friendships in turn provide a platform for this generation to become more empathic, and to value humanity on all levels.
Feel free to contact us for more information or to schedule a tour! We look forward to hearing from you!
East Lake Montessori (ELM) is a ministry partner with New City East Lake Church (PCA). We believe that every child deserves a strong foundational education that ignites creativity and a lifelong love of learning. We do not discriminate based on race, ethnicity, ability, or sex. We believe that God has created everyone in His unique image, and as such deserves compassion, dignity, and a sense of place and purpose. ELM is designed to communicate these things to every child that walks through our doors.
