A new Montessori school is opening in the Richmond Road area.
Harmony Day School is at Victory Lutheran Church at Old Todds and Mount Tabor roads. It is now accepting applications for the 2010-11 school year, owner Michelle Campbell says.
Enrollment initially will be limited to 24 children, who must be 3 or 4 years old on or before Oct. 1. Enrollment will expand in coming years, Campbell said.
The school primarily will serve the Richmond Road-Andover-Hamburg areas but also expects to draw children from other parts of Lexington, said Campbell, who has been a certified Montessori teacher since 1994.
Classes at Harmony Day School will run from 8:40 a.m. to noon Monday through Thursday. Curriculum will be tailored to each child's readiness, needs and interests, Campbell said.
The school will hold an orientation camp for students starting Aug. 24. The regular school year begins Sept. 6. An open house is planned in July.
The non-profit school is not affiliated with any church and accepts students regardless of race, gender or handicap status, Campbell says.
