Woodpark Montessori was established in 1990 by Priyanthi and Nimal Sundaram. Priyanthi did her Montessori training through AMI in Sri Lanka and began teaching in 1979. She decided to open her school in April of 1990. Starting with just three students, they quickly grew. In June of 2005, they acquired a building that would accommodate their fast growing Woodpark family.
As of January 2016, Pryanthi and Nimal’s daughter Dilini will be graduating from Iowa State University and will continue the family tradition by taking on her parents’ responsibilities at their school. Woodpark has a dedicated staff and many of the lead teachers
have been here for over 13 years. Our current director, Miss Misty, has been working with them since she was 16 years old, and in October 2015, she will have been with Woodpark for 20 years.
