Serving Decatur Since 2014

Strategically situated in downtown Decatur, Georgia, in close proximity to Emory, the CDC, and the Atlanta VA Medical Center, the Montessori Academy stands as a beacon of diversity within our community since 2014. With an unwavering commitment to excellence, our academy offers an exceptional Montessori experience, fostering an environment that cherishes and celebrates individual differences. Rooted in family values, our program is designed to not only provide unparalleled service but also to deepen the comprehension of early childhood learning, a wisdom we gladly share with both parents and the broader educational community.

At the heart of our childcare program is an inclusive approach that introduces Mandarin exposure to all students from as young as 6 weeks old. Additionally, our students engage in a dynamic Physical Education class every week, featuring the innovative Playball curriculum, starting from the Toddler class onwards. As a testament to our dedication to holistic well-being, we take immense pride in offering a daily lunch menu centered around plant-based nutrition. This menu is thoughtfully crafted using ingredients sourced from the esteemed Dekalb Farmers Market and meticulously prepared by our in-house cook.

Montessori Academy Programs for Your Child and You


0 - 23 Months

Our Montessori Nido program focuses on creating a nurturing environment that fosters strong connections with families through regular communication, family events, and shared experiences. We emphasize developmentally appropriate learning by providing infants with carefully curated materials and activities that support their natural growth and exploration, guided by trained educators who understand and respond to each child's unique developmental stage.

Enriching Our Students' Experience

Our extracurricular program at Montessori Academy in Decatur, GA, goes beyond academics to nurture the holistic development of your child. We offer a diverse range of activities designed to spark creativity and enhance physical and cognitive skills.


24 - 35 Months

Our Montessori Toddler Community places a strong emphasis on fostering a sense of community by encouraging collaboration, empathy, and respect among children and adults alike. Independence is nurtured through carefully prepared environments that allow toddlers to engage in meaningful, self-directed activities that promote confidence and autonomy. Language development is enriched by exposing children to multiple languages through immersive experiences, songs, stories, and interactions with educators who are proficient in different languages, enabling toddlers to naturally acquire and appreciate linguistic diversity.



The Montessori Academy Summer of Discovery Camp offers children a vibrant and caring community, encouraging cooperation, independence, and self-discovery. Our eight week summer session includes fun and stimulating activities in gardening, cooking, Spanish, Mandarin, yoga, arts, outdoor education, and academic enrichment.


3 Years - 6 Years


Providing a prepared environment where children ages 3 to 6 years are free to respond to their natural curiosity and desire to learn and grow, the Montessori Academy's Primary Program is a true Montessori education. Children receive individualized instruction from their teachers allowing them to go as far and as fast as they desire.
