At Montessori Kids Universe Ashburn, we believe that learning is a journey. Our goal is to develop independent thinkers who embrace community responsibility, leadership, and thrive academically.

Many preschools offer academic or even "Montessori" programs. At Montessori Kids Universe Ashburn, we offer a classic Montessori education enhanced with a Reggio Emilia inspired art and science enrichment experience.

Mission: We understand what matters most to you. Our school is so much more than merely a place where your child has the opportunity to learn and grow. We strive to not only be the BEST in early childhood education; but to care for, nurture, and inspire your child while providing a unique community we like to call the Montessori Kids Universe family.
