Heartwood Montessori School, founded in 1991 by Sue Daniel (AMS Credentialed), is located at 112 Byrum Street in the heart of Cary, North Carolina, near the intersection of I-40/440 and US-1/64, serving Cary, Apex, Morrisville, and the greater Raleigh area. Heartwood is committed to quality education for children ages 18 months to eighteen years with a total student population of 180.  Our school provides an extensive curriculum based on the Montessori Method and inclusive of State and National standards.
The Montessori approach encourages children to learn through self-motivation within a carefully prepared environment. The multi-age setting offers the child an opportunity to relate to, and work with others at his/her developmental level. At all levels and in all areas, Heartwood places the needs of the child first. The AMS credentialed staff believes that children, not subjects, are taught. Respect for the child is the cornerstone of Heartwood's philosophy.  Community is important to us.
