New Montessori School Wants to Move to the Old Spicer’s Upholstery Off Duke Street

A new Montessori school program could be opening just off Duke Street if its special use permit gets approved.

The new Heritage Montessori Day and Preschool would be located at 3649 Wheeler Avenue, near the Spicer’s Upholstery that closed last year and across the street from the Alexandria Police Department.

Montessori education is a method of teaching developed by Maria Montessori that emphasizes independent learning by children and giving students more independence in their learning methods.

According to the permit, the school would serve families with children ranging from 20 months to 12 years old, and will run from 8 a.m.-5 p.m.

The program will be designed to host 150 children at the school, with 70 preschoolers and 80 children in grades K-6.

The school is currently opening enrollment for the 2021/2022 school year. According to the school website, essential workers and military members also receive discounts.

“If you’re an essential worker, Heritage Montessori is pleased to offer you a 20% discount on the registration and activity fees,” The school said on the website. “If you’re a proud member of the military, we’re offering a 10% discount on tuition.”

The school’s special use permit is scheduled for review at the May 4 Planning Commission meeting.
