Who We Are

We opened in 2001, but our story begins long before that

Our educational philosophy is anchored by Dr. Maria Montessori’s proven methods and ideals. Her view of children as independent, capable, unique human beings worthy of our love, respect, and trust remains as revolutionary today as when she started in 1907. This view guides our partnership with your child from the first day of school to the last.

Founded by the Theriot family in 2001, the concept of family has always defined not just what we do but who we are as an organization. A child’s enrollment in an authentic Montessori school should be an experience for the entire family. One, which helps parents to grow along with the child.

As a member of the MAB community, you’re a part of our family, too.

What is Montessori?

For a quick explanation of Montessori, it is best to focus on four key components: 

  • Philosophy / methodology 
  • The Montessori teacher
  • The physical environment 
  • Mixed-age classes

Of course, there is much, much more to learn!

Our blog page should be your next stop. All of the posts are written by our own faculty! Click on any of the titles you find to learn more. If you prefer real-time conversation, please give us a call at 703-729-7200. We’re happy to speak with you anytime (honestly, we could talk about this stuff all day!)

It is the child who makes the man, and no man exists who was not made by the child he once was.

What parents say
The teachers at MAB have proven themselves to be professional, caring, and dedicated to the kids. Likewise, the administration is committed to always working towards the enrichment and development of the children and working with parents to identify and resolve whatever issues may come up. Our kids have thrived at MAB and we have treasured our experiences there and the friendships we, too, have developed.

Pro Tip #6: It's ok to let your children be dial-up in a 5G world.
Pro Tip #19: Never make a happy child happier.
Pro Tip #12: Don't rescue your child from boredom.
Pro Tip #24: Word choice matters. A few seconds of careful thought before speaking to your child can make all the difference.
Pro Tip #9: Keep it positive and let your child be the first judge of how they feel. Instead of asking "What's wrong?" try "How are you?"
Pro Tip #3: Anytime you say "I can't get my child to..." or "He won't..." it means control is out of balance. Reset the balance before you try to fix anything else.
