Montessori at Riverton was established in 1998 from the hearts of Jeff and Valerie Whitehead. Having a great respect for Maria Montessori and her philosophy in education, the Whitehead's dreamed of a school that was nourishing, respectful and challenging for the many students under their direction. The Whitehead's combined their 40 years of teaching experience and set about to create their dream. Creating a beautiful, imaginative, calm atmosphere, where children are enchanted by their surroundings and find the joy of learning was a high priority.
