The programs at Richland Academy are committed to providing an individualized education, which combines the Montessori method of early childhood education with current research about developmentally appropriate practices. Our programs aim to educate the whole child within warm environments which foster a life-long love of learning, nurture positive self-concepts, and lay the foundations for future success in our multi-cultural, multi-racial, multi-ethnic, linguistically-diverse world.

Although the environments, structure, materials, staff, and curriculum differ according to the category of service provided (academic programs or childcare services) and according to the ages of children served (toddler, preschool, kindergarten); all of the Programs at Richland Academy share common views of the child, the classroom environment, and the teacher.
