All children are unique and learn at their own pace

Our philosophy is based upon Dr. Maria Montessori’s vast understanding of children and their natural tendencies to explore and become independent. Children are innately curious about the world around them, and the classroom is a place where the child is able to move freely and choose from a multitude of fascinating materials to interact with, in a peaceful and serene atmosphere. Dr. Maria Montessori believed that all children are unique and learn at their own pace, which is one of the reasons our classrooms have mixed age groups. Children should always have the opportunity to advance and develop according to their pace, and learning should never be stifled just because of age. 


Mrs. Dayani Nawagamuwa

Welcome to Hill Point Montessori, where we are committed to providing a unique educational experience that focuses on the development of the whole child. Our Montessori training is rooted in the philosophy that character development is central to success in any field. Our goal is to create a nurturing environment where every child can flourish and develop a life-long love of learning.

As the Head of School, I received my Montessori training in 1987, and at first, I doubted my ability to be a great teacher. But with dedication and an understanding of the Montessori method, I found my calling and have since spent over 30 years teaching, mentoring teachers and parents, and operating Montessori schools. From my experience, I can confidently say that Montessori education not only equips children with the tools to learn but also instills in them the right characteristics that will guide them to be successful individuals.

Our school values are centered on character development, and we believe that children are shaped by the adults around them. As educators, we are committed to being knowledgeable, modeling appropriate behaviors, and creating an environment where every child can thrive. We welcome you and your children to our very special and unique school, where they will receive the education and guidance they need to become valuable contributors to the future of our world.

Thank you for considering Hill Point Montessori as a place where your child can grow and thrive. We look forward to working with you.


We are proud to announce that our students performed above grade level on their IOWA standardized tests.
