THE HISTORY OF MONTESSORI
The very first “Montessori Educational Center” Omaha preschool opened in 1968 under the guidance of Dr. LaVonne Kopecky Plambeck.
When she retired last year, Julie and Dr. Beau Roy purchased the schools. As owners of six Montessori schools in Canada and with more than 22 years of experience, they bring a visionary history and approach to raise Omaha’s Montessori schools to the next level of excellence. “We’re so excited to work with our families and grow our schools to achieve the highest level of Montessori preschool education in Omaha,” says Roy. “I see great things for our children and families in Montessori now and in the future. We have four children of our own, and our passion and love for Montessori and early childhood education are why we started these schools. We wanted a superb learning experience for our children. We wanted to take them somewhere where we felt great about leaving them, knowing they would be immersed in the wonderment of education and positive early learning experiences. We truly want that same incredible experience for your child.”
Independent, exploration learning is a hallmark of the Montessori approach to education, making it an ideal choice for parents who want their children to reach their full potential.
