Gurukul LLC, the parent organization of The Wesley Chapel Montessori School at Lexington Oaks (WCMS), was formed in early 2013 to provide an excellent early childhood education program in one of the fastest growing regions in the Tampa Bay area. Ms. Pavitra Arni, the President and Founder of WCMS comes from a family that has always valued education and entrepreneurship. Her Montessori journey began in 2009 as she has strived to find the very best education for her own daughter. Ms. Arni and her Co-Founder, Ms. Preeti Singh, both share a passion for children and education which inspired them to conceptualize The Wesley Chapel Montessori School at Lexington Oaks. With the guidance and mentorship of avid fellow Montessorians, their vision took form and the construction of the school began in November 2013. WCMS opened its doors to students in the summer of 2014 and continues to serve the families of the community.
WCMS is located just within the Lexington Oaks community. WCMS provides a specialized curriculum based on the Montessori method for Pre-Primary, VPK, and Kindergarten age children (3 to 6 years). WCMS also offers a Young Children’s Program (12 months to 3 years). Our school has been architecturally designed with the children’s needs in mind and provides a secure environment that allows the personal growth of each child.
Free the child’s potential, and you will transform him into the world.
