Welcome to MELA Montessori & Reggio School

At MELA (Murphy Early Learning Academy), we believe in cultivating a lifelong love of learning in a nurturing, stimulating, and welcoming environment. Our dynamic learning community provides a unique blend of Montessori methodology, inquiry-based learning, Performing Arts, and Athletics. Here, every child is celebrated, their curiosity ignited, and their potential unlocked.

Our Philosophy

We follow the child-centered approach inherent in Montessori education that promotes the development of social, emotional, cognitive, and physical aspects. We inspire our students to be creative, innovative thinkers, and compassionate global citizens.

Shaping Future Learners


At MELA, our Infant Program is a haven of warmth and care, thoughtfully designed to cater to the unique needs of babies. We prioritize fostering independence from a young age within a cozy and secure environment.


At MELA, we understand the importance of those earliest stages of life, which is why we've created a loving, safe, and stimulating environment for our youngest students aged 1-3 years.


At MELA, we are passionate about helping little ones come into their own, starting from the tender age of three. Our primary communities cater to children aged three to five, with their long-term success at the heart of our approach.


At MELA, we're devoted to shaping future leaders. Our nurturing environment encourages children to harness their innate creativity, problem-solving skills, and interest in various subjects like art, science, and math. We also emphasize the development of reasoning skills and language acquisition.
