About Us

Grow, Learn, Create

The Kay Shell Montessori School was founded with one purpose - to build a space for all students to grow, learn and create with each passing day. We believe pre-school children possess a remarkable ability to absorb the world that surrounds them. Maria Montessori believed that the years from 2 to 6 are the most critical period for nurturing a child’s natural curiosity and for laying the foundation for all future development. We are thrilled to be a part of your child's life during this sensitive time.

Our school's namesake, Kay Shell, was a life-long resident of Coweta County and a graduate of Newnan High School. She and her husband, Jerrel, raised their two children on her family's farm in Sharpsburg. Kay was known for her unquestioning love of others and in her radiant smile. It is this love and brightness that the Kay Shell Montessori school hopes to emulate.
