At CMA, we believe connecting with nature is important for children. Our five-acre campus supports this belief, offering a range of outdoor play and learning areas, plus a variety of activities to develop children’s large and fine motor skills. All the while, the children are building lasting friendships and an appreciation of nature.

Our well-rounded outdoor campus features:

  • A natural playground of rolling hills
  • Swings
  • A climbing wall
  • A slide and sandbox
  • A large field for soccer, tag, and cooperative games
  • Garden spaces outside each classroom
  • An area of wildflowers
  • A young forest, where trails provide a place for discovery and creative play by building forts with sticks and vines


Our classrooms consist of two Pre-Primary rooms (Preschool and Kindergarten); two Lower Elementary classrooms (grades 1-3); and one Upper Elementary classroom (grades 4-6).

Classrooms are Montessori-prepared environments including age-appropriate works and classroom pets. Our facilities also include a well-stocked library and an art/enrichment space. Our current enrollment is approximately 100 students, served by 25 faculty and staff members.
