Programs at Goose Creek

The Montessori Educational Method is probably the world’s first brain-based educational method – believed by many to be the best. The method is hands-on learning at its best, allowing the child to develop self-expression, collaboration, and responsibility in a classroom that promotes happiness, respect, and joy of learning. Long before we could look at the brain with MRIs, Dr. Montessori developed an educational method to help a child’s brain develop. Dr. Montessori’s method has been time tested, with more than 100 years of success around the world.

Montessori School at Goose Creek Preserve serves children from ages 2½ to 6. Our teachers guide students through lessons and activities that both tease the child’s curiosity and are tailored to the skill level of each individual child, providing an environment that recognizes and encourages a sense of independence.


When it came to choosing a preschool for my grandson, we could think of no more perfect place than the sylvan setting of Hunter Mill Montessori. At Hunter MIll Montessori, parents and grandparents alike can see students expand their horizons as they learn academics, social skills and independence. We couldn't be more pleased!

Our family chose HMMS not only because it was recommended by all of our neighbors (and we have a lots of them) but once you step into the school, you can feel the warmth of the school community and its teachers. Our three sons attended HMMS and have far exceeded our expectations, socially, and educationally. 

The Woltz Family

Both of our kids went through the full program including Kindergarten and we could not have been happier with it. The kids loved school and Mrs. Cook and the rest of the teaching staff were engaged, responsive, and so clearly cared about all the kids. 

We chose [the school] nearly decade ago after touring many other local schools. We found its student/teacher ratio, cleanliness and educational program to be the best fit for our three children. As a working parent, I wanted a place where my child safe and cared for, while learning in an environment that met each of their different needs. 

Holly Brook Montessori School was an incredible experience for our son. He is ahead in math in elementary school, has great social skills, and is very respectful to his teachers. I give all of this credit to HB for helping to make him a well-rounded individual. Can't wait for our second to attend.

We were part of the Holly Brook family for 6 years. Our boys learned so many useful skills from math, reading, independence, and public speaking that set them up for success. One of the reasons we picked the school was due to how well they welcome international families and how open they are to learn about other cultures and traditions and incorporate them into their curriculum. We highly recommend this preschool, you will not regret it. - Sara
