Our 12th Street School opened in 2016 and is nicknamed "Ty's Place" in honor of our founder Kate Healy's son Tyler.

We accept ages 4 weeks - 12 years at this location.

We are open Monday - Friday, 6:30am - 5:30pm (max 10 hours/day).

Infant room hours are 7:00am - 5:30pm.

We participate in the USDA food program. Breakfast, lunch and snack are all provided. See one of our weekly menus

We provide a mix of Montessori works, outside play and music every day. 

Each age-group has a developmentally appropriate outside space to explore. 

Gardening, Yoga, ASL and Spanish are incorporated into weekly lesson plans.


Gymnastics, Soccer and Kindermusik are all available during school hours with an extra fee.

My name is Jenn Reed. I joined the NTMC family in December of 2017 and I am so thankful to be a part of this wonderful community! I absolutely love teaching and working with preschoolers. I have been working in early childhood education for most of my adult life. I have a total of 10 years of Montessori classroom experience, and my Montessori certificate is MACTE accredited and affiliated with AMS training programs. I have been married for 14 years to my high school sweetheart and we have two beautiful children. My favorite colors are green and purple. I love dogs, coffee, yoga, crochet and reading. I look forward to getting to know you and working with your preschooler!
