• Early Achievers Montessori School

St. John’s, NL

The new home for the early achievers Montessori school and education centre is located on Hebron Way near Stavanger Drive.  The 9,500 square foot school will house all the centre’s educational programs under one roof, with programs tailored for children ages 24 months to 12 years.  The interior of the facility, with 8 classrooms, is designed to complement and capture the philosophy of the Montessori educational program by integrating sunlight, colour, texture, and form to create unique spaces that stimulate learning.
