About Canterbury Preparatory School

Canterbury Preparatory School first opened its doors on August 14th, 2001 and is conveniently located in the Corporate Lakes Business Park in Overland Park, Kansas. We’re only a mile from both the I-435 and US-69 freeways. We know that finding the right early childhood program for your family is one of the most important decisions you can make and we strive every day to create an enriching environment where your child will thrive.

Our trained, qualified, and caring staff takes a hands-on approach to learning and provides quality programming and dedicated teachers for children from when they join us as infants all the way through pre-kindergarten. Our students are encouraged to be active and creative explorers, as well as independent, self-confident and inquisitive learners. Each child is treated as an individual and encouraged to progress at his or her natural ability while still reaching desired age-level goals.

  • Infant Daycare (ages 2 weeks to 1 year)
  • Toddler Daycare (ages 1 to 2.5)
  • Preschool (ages 2.5 to 4)
  • Pre-Kindergarten (ages 4 to 5)

Our Philosophy

Our primary objective at Canterbury Academy is to provide the most enriching environment to facilitate a child’s development. We believe that every child has the ability to learn and to teach, and that a child who enjoys learning will always seek challenges in life.

Our programs are based upon the Montessori principles of self-direction, and experiential education. We promote a thoughtful and sensitive atmosphere in each classroom, and we support cooperation between children as they learn from one another.

What Makes Us Unique

Canterbury Academy schools are known for our warmly decorated, homelike environment. Our family-friendly policy is one that welcomes parent visits any time of the day. We host monthly events and parties celebrating major holidays that create a fun, celebratory feel on campus. We also offer age-appropriate playgrounds and outdoor learning environments.

Breakfast and a hot, nutritious lunch is made on-premises by our full-time cook and served each day along with regularly scheduled snacks.

Our Location

We are conveniently located near the intersection of Metcalf Avenue and W 119th St, less than a mile from the I-435 and US-69 freeways. Some of our neighboring communities include Deer Creek and Lionsgate. We’re excited to show you what makes Canterbury Preparatory School different.

We love Canterbury! We have such peace of mind knowing that our kids (from infant-stage and up) are in a place they are well-cared-for, given lots of love, positive attention, and great educational development opportunities. The Canterbury team communicates well and takes a fair and reasonable approach to handling tough situations (like the pandemic). We’re big fans! Highly recommend!
