The first Montessori Educational Center opened in 1968 under the guidance of Dr. LaVonne Kopecky Plambeck. When she retired last year, the schools were purchased by Julie Roy, who, as an owner of six Montessori schools in Canada with more than 22 years’ experience, brings a visionary history and approach to raise Omaha’s Montessori schools to the next level of excellence.

“I’m excited to work with our families, and grow our schools, to achieve the highest level of preschool education in Omaha,” says Roy. “I see great things for our children and families in Montessori now and in the future.”

Independent 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.

Children in Montessori classrooms initiate their own learning based upon their interests, and their exploration is supported by teachers who provide optimal learning environments. Montessori has a network of seven Educational Centers throughout the Omaha area, serving children from 6 weeks through 12 years old.
