TMA Celebrates 10th Year as School Year Begins

With the 2018-19 School year in full swing, Triangle Montessori Academy enters its 10th year of education with a dedication to shaping the lives of young people in central North Carolina. Founded in 2008, the school has continued to strengthen and refine the student’s experience in the classroom while adhering to the authentic teachings of Maria Montessori.


Recently, Nick and Puja Patel took over the administration of the school. After a smooth transition, the operation at TMA hasn’t missed a beat.


“We just fell in love with the campus, students, and staff,” says Puja Patel, Head of School at Triangle Montessori Academy. “The opportunity to run TMA fit our goals and personalities. We already enjoy the day-to-day challenges and joys of running the school.”


On the horizon, expanded options for school hours and aftercare will become available. There are also improvements for communication with parents underway, including easy-to-use enrollment forms on the website.


Triangle Montessori Academy is a Cary preschool emphasizing art, mathematics, practical life, Spanish, yoga, meditation, and music. The private, year-round school was founded in 2008 and accepts children from 18 months old up to six years old. The school is a member of the American Montessori Society and all teachers are AMS-certified. Students at the school are exposed to Montessori-style teaching approaches, including individual learning according to each child’s style and pace, multi-age classrooms that allow children to advance when they are ready, and a nurturing of students’ natural curiosity.
