Getting Started

  • Getting Started

    Heron Pond Montessori School education is based on the characteristics and needs of children at each stage of their development. Our students’ natural curiosity and desire to master the world is encouraged through carefully prepared learning environments, internationally recognized Montessori materials, and the individual attention and guidance of specially trained, nurturing teachers. Students who share a common developmental stage learn in a mixed age class. The full potential of each individual is supported with collaborative and independent activities that develop confidence, concentration, initiative and persistence. Learning, working and playing together, Heron Pond Montessori School students become responsible members of their community, society and the world.
  • Registration and Tuition

    Heron Pond Montessori School welcomes students of all races, religions, and ethnicities. Our enrollment process aims to ensure that HPMS remains a lively and diverse community guided by Montessori philosophy, committed to the shared work of “following the child.”

  • I am continually awed by this school and the staff. My boy is excited to go to school each morning, and sad when it is not a school day. Pretty amazing.

  • My son attended Heron Pond Montessori preschool last year, and we are so thankful for his time there. His teachers are first rate! He was happy and excited to go to school every day, and his experiences gave him a fantastic foundation for starting Kindergarten. The HPMS influence still can be seen and felt in all my son's daily activities. I highly recommend HPMS in Kitty Hawk to anyone looking for a quality school for their children!

  • Heron Pond Montessori School is the best school on the Outer Banks, NC. I have two children enrolled in HPMS from 2007-2013 ongoing. We've been very happy with the curriculum they use, the staff, classroom materials and layout, playgrounds, gardens, even social events and the fundraisers that they host . They don't just teach our children academics, they build strong ,confident, caring and happy children. They learn how to cook, to clean, take care of pets, garden, and I could go on and on. My children wake up in the morning excited to go to school.
