About FBA McKnight

montessori preschool

Large Outdoor Playground

Our outdoor playground features an ample amount of green space, with plenty of room for children to roam, explore and be active. Here you will find natural wood beams, tree stumps, a stage for dramatic play, and Montessori-inspired gardens to aid the children’s learning as they play!

Indoor Gym Area

For those days of the year when it’s too cold to go outside, we have a spacious indoor gym in which our qualified physical education teachers teach our Movement program! The children can develop an active and healthy lifestyle using mini basketball nets, running through obstacle courses, and building giant forts. Even the infants get their own dedicated movement space!

Diverse Toddler Classrooms

Our toddlers enjoy specifically designed rooms for our Right Brain and Left programs, with a distinct drop-off for parents. Here they have their own separate space for sensorial activities, free play, and music!
