Keystone Montessori

On Jan. 8, Keystone Montessori honored their key founder, Sherri Sampson, with day-long festivities which included an open house and a student-designed slide show and presentations. There were also special guest speakers from Keystone alumni Eunea Yoo and Teresa Velasco. They shared how their Keystone education gave them the solid foundation for a lifelong love of learning.

In the morning, the staff hosted an open house. Keystone families sampled student-made baked goods while they observed students of all ages working on Montessori materials in an “open classroom” format. Keystone Montessori, originally named Quail Run, was founded in 1995 in Ms. Sampson’s home with 13 students. Keystone has since grown to serve more than 300 students, ages 18 months to 15 years. In 2000, they moved to the location in Ahwatukee Foothills.

Keystone is currently accepting children from 18 months to 4 years old. For more information please contact their admissions coordinator Laura Hertzler at
