Zeba Ali

Head of School

I’ve been in the child care industry for almost 20 years, and have worked as a teacher and an administrator in several private, public, and charter schools. I am also Montessori certified.

I am so pleased to be able to follow my passion for educating young children and mentoring teachers along the way. I believe in providing a safe and secure environment for all children, families, and staff members. A big reason why I love Montessori so much is because it allows your children to be able to use their imagination and curiosity throughout the day, as well as build a lifelong love of learning!

A little bit about me, in my spare time I love to be outdoors, travel and spend time with my family. I have a 2-year-old granddaughter so we are always searching for new adventures!
