Little Grove Preschool is housed on the first floor of Mountain City Public Montessori's 3-story campus in the educational wing of Central United Methodist Church. We are located in the heart of Downtown Asheville, nestled on a quiet street away from heavy traffic, and surrounded by churches and other preschools.
This downtown location offers exciting opportunities for walking field trips, visits, and partnerships with places like the Asheville Art Museum, AMOS, Pack Memorial Library, and all that downtown has to offer. We are also within easy walking distance from the ART bus station.
Our school community's well-being is of utmost importance to us, and we work with Mountain City Public Montessori and CUMC to ensure a safe and secure campus for all our learners.
Inside the school...
There are two Primary (early childhood) classrooms, an office, and a multi-purpose classroom for arts, movement, and enrichment classes.
Each of our early childhood classrooms provides a carefully curated Montessori learning environment, with beautiful, hands-on materials and child-sized tables. Classrooms have plenty of windows to let in natural light, class plants, child-sized sinks, and direct bathroom access.
Our outdoor playground is an important part of our learning environment. It is fully enclosed for safety, and offers ample space for young children to play.
Each classroom has a total of 21 students, with a combination of Little Grove Preschoolers and MCPM Kindergartners learning together under the guidance of 2 designated teachers in each classroom, for a 10:1 student/teacher ratio.
