Note from the Head of School:

As the Head of School at Willow Montessori Academy, it is my pleasure to extend a warm welcome to all families considering our school for their child's education. At WMA, we believe in providing a nurturing and supportive environment that empowers children to learn and grow at their own pace.

Our teachers are dedicated to following the Montessori approach, which emphasizes the individual needs and interests of each child. By creating a dynamic and engaging curriculum, we aim to inspire a love of learning that will stay with our students for life.

We are committed to educating the whole child, which means not only supporting their academic development but also their social and emotional growth.


Our aim is to foster in our students a sense of responsibility towards their community and the world around them. We take great pride in our warm and vibrant learning environment, and we invite you to come and explore our campus and experience the joy of learning that our students enjoy every day.

Thank you for considering Willow Montessori Academy, and I look forward to meeting you and your child as we embark on a journey of exploration and success together.

With Gratitude, 

Barkha Naik Joseph
