About Daycroft


The Daycroft School was founded in 1960, as a small, privately-owned preschool, and has expanded to serve toddlers, preschoolers and students from kindergarten through fifth grade.

Our students are empowered to create, explore and engage in a variety of hands-on activities. We provide purposeful learning in a very strong, relational community.  

We provide a personalized learning environment that appreciates individual differences, nurtures the whole child, and enables students to develop at their own pace and achieve to their full potential. Inspired by principles first developed by Maria Montessori, education here is student-centered, not only in appreciating individual differences and accommodating individual learning styles, but also in enabling students to take significant responsibility for their own learning.
