Preschool & Daycare Serving Brighton, MI

For more than a century, the child-focused approach Italian physician Dr. Maria Montessori conceptualized, has transformed education world-wide.
When you enter a Montessori classroom, something is different. Within the community of a multi-age class, designed to create opportunities for independence and accountability between students, children follow their curiosity at their own pace, taking the time they need to understand concepts and meet individualized learning goals while working creatively on engaging projects.

In 1987, Brighton Montessori School was established by a Montessori visionary, and ever since it has evolved into the community stronghold, it is today thanks to Leann Chamberlain, who took leadership of the school in 2016. 

The mom of three has been in the Montessori teaching field for 13 years. A Montessori student herself, Leann’s passion for Montessori education drives her commitment to propel young minds into the curious, natural learners and critical thinkers the world needs.

Leann holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Michigan and is pursuing her Masters of School Administration from Eastern Michigan University. She also holds her Infant/Toddler Montessori Credential from Columbus Montessori Teacher Education Center and her Preprimary Montessori Credential from Michigan Montessori Teacher Education Center.
At Brighton Montessori, expect a child-centered, orderly, and welcoming environment with a lower teacher to child ratio and low staff turnover. Our team of experienced, professional, and qualified Montessori early educators is here to guide and inspire your child’s most magical years of early development.
