Apple Montessori Schools Towaco is located in a historic, charming, brick schoolhouse updated with many modern conveniences. Located near major highways this location contains ample parking. This school features spacious classrooms with natural light with a designated FasTracKids room where children use tactile materials, and interactive technology to bolster their critical thinking, creativity, communication, and collaboration skills. The outdoor space contains two playgrounds with safety turf and support padding, a uniquely designed swimming pool, an outdoor Sports Court, and a shaded picnic area. It also features a certified outdoor classroom to connect children to nature while they learn.

"Highly recommend! They have great hours for the working parents and my child loves to go to school! Since he has been there (3months) he has learned all his colors in Spanish and English, numbers up to 30, ABCs, and the pronunciation of his words have improved significantly. The teachers have a monthly parent conference to keep you up to date on the status of your child's learning. They also have an app where they post pictures throughout the day so you never miss a moment. They are very in touch with every student and the care they give my son is beyond amazing. I would recommend to any parent in need of finding a school or child care!"
