Glen Allen Community Montessori School was born from a desire to bring affordable educational options to the larger Richmond community. As parents, we felt there wasn’t an answer for wanting to gift our children with the beauty of the Montessori curriculum without sacrificing so much of our livelihoods to do so.
After the sudden closure of Virginia Community Montessori, the community of current families, prospective families, and businesses rallied around the mission statement of the school, knowing that the school was answering a need in the community and there had to be a way for it to continue.
Unitarian Universalist Community Church of Glen Allen opened their doors to us, seeing a deep connection between themselves and the school’s mission and a shared excitement of the possibilities and goals we could reach together.
With this partnership we have plenty of room to grow and access to a beautiful outdoor space established with a welcoming, supportive congregation.
