Planning for the 2021-22 School Year

Heartwood is not operating this school year due to COVID-19

Heartwood will reopen in a new location and will have a slight name change. The new name will be Heartwood Village Montessori. This is a group of teachers, former director, and dedicated families who wish to form a non-profit entity for HVM.
