The History of ANH

Founded in 2006, ANH Montessori has grown from two guides and twelve students to a staff of sixteen and a current enrollment of 120 students in six classrooms. Our guides and assistants offer our families a true Montessori education for their children. You will find our rooms spacious, environmentally conscious with lovely, engaging work areas filled with materials and lessons designed to captivate the student’s imagination and support his or her natural development.

We would like to invite you to visit us and see for yourself the beauty and excellence of the Montessori classroom. Our mission is to inspire a life long desire for learning and to build a sharing community amongst our students, their families, our staff and the world community. Our students thrive because together we can create a learning environment which meets the intellectual, physical, social, creative, and emotional needs of the whole child.

We want ANH Montessori to be a place where families and their children feel welcomed, their individuality is respected, and they are inspired each day to follow their dreams.  If you are interested in taking a tour of our school please call us to set up a time for a visit.  You may reach us at (479) 936-7615.

We look forward to greeting you and your child for a visit to our school.

All the best,

Amanda Rumancik, Owner/Director
