About Us


The vision for this school began in the summer of 2012 when a group at The Gathering at Scott Memorial UMC realized that we couldn’t afford to send our children to a top-quality preschool to prepare them for public school. So we set out to create a quality Christian, Montessori Preschool that is both affordable and innovative for all children in Virginia Beach. We are proud that a part of our enrollment process is offering tuition rates based on income so that students from all socio-economic levels can learn together in one classroom.

There can be no keener revelation of a society’s soul than the way in which it treats its children.
