Welcome to Canterbury Schools!

Canterbury Schools provide children with enriching environments that facilitate their early development. We offer the following childcare and early education programs: Infants, Toddlers, Preschool, Pre-Kindergarten, Private Elementary (K-3), Before & After School Care, and Summer Camp.

Our programs are based upon the Montessori principles of self-direction and experiential education and we take a skill-based approach to early childhood education through our Ascend Curriculum. Young children have an endless capacity to learn and we believe that the best way to support early development is to give children some control over their own learning process. We accomplish this by offering a variety of experimental and playful activities and encouraging our students to select what they want to participate in.

There are 5 Canterbury Schools throughout the Kansas City metropolitan area and each school serves different age groups.

We have 4 schools in Kansas:

Our 5th school is in Kansas City, Missouri – Canterbury Academy at Briarcliff – 1701 NW Platte Rd, Kansas City, MO 64150
