MMPSchool originated in 1977 when Beverly Kovach, working mother of two, could not find care for her two small children. A family therapist by profession, Beverly quickly recognized the value of supporting parents and teachers at the early childhood level and the contributions young children provide the greater community. Over the years, the center developed into a leading advocate and model for best practices, bringing both RIE™ and Montessori to the Mount Pleasant community.
MMPSchool continues to be family held by RIE™ and Montessori certified directors, David and Nicole Vigliotti. In 2002 the family converted the private Montessori elementary program into a public charter Montessori elementary school and began renovations in order to focus on the first developmental plane- birth through six years.
