A Montessori program has filed a permit to open a new school in the city’s Landmark neighborhood.

National franchise Montessori Kids Universe is planning to open a “Montessori Kids Universe of Cameron Square”, currently under administrative review to open at 410 S. Pickett Street.

The program would be aimed at students 0-5 years old and would incorporate elements of both the Montessori and Reggio Emilia educational philosophies, in which students explore and direct their own educational experience with guidance from teachers.

The next closest Montessori Kids Universe school is in Ashburn, but the school is far from the first of its kind in Alexandria. There are at least three Montessori schools in Alexandria, though most of those are in Old Town and Del Ray. Two additional Montessori schools have filed permits to open this year.

The application said the school will have a capacity of 106 children.
