The School’s History
Kaye Boehning opened Tomorrow’s Promise in September 1997 to provide a Christian Montessori school where children are free to learn at their own pace. Mrs. Boehning wanted to bring Montessori to Huntsville and make it affordable for everyone who just had their child in “daycare”. Typically, Montessori is available only to the wealthy ($900.00-$1,000.00 per month) or the very poor (located in many head start programs nationwide).
Tomorrow’s Promise, Inc. is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) corporation organized exclusively for educational purposes. Our mission is to provide an excellent Montessori education for K-6 as well as providing care for infants, toddlers, preschool, and after-school children. Our environment encourages the development of the skills and habits that facilitate a life-long love for learning, providing a quality educational foundation for students to encourage competence, problem-solving skills, and self-motivation, as well as becoming moral, personal and socially responsible individuals.
