The very first "Montessori Educational Center" Omaha preschool opened in 1968 under the guidance of Dr. LaVonne Kopecky Plambeck. When she retired, the schools were purchased by Julie & Dr. Beau Roy, who, as owners of six Montessori schools in Canada & more than 22 years of experience, bring a visionary history & approach to raise Omaha's Montessori schools to the next level of excellence. "We're so excited to work with our families, & grow our schools, to achieve the highest level of Montessori preschool education in Omaha," says Roy. "I see great things for our children and families in Montessori now & in the future. We have four children of our own & our passion & love for Montessori & Early childhood education is why we started these schools. We wanted a superb learning experience for our children. We wanted to take them somewhere where we felt so great about leaving them; knowing they were being immersed in a wonderment of education & positive early learning experiences.
