About Us

In 1986, Minister Deborah & John Bryson opened their first Christian Montessori School, in Durham, North Carolina.,

Deborah holds degrees in Business Administration, Montessori Preprimary Credential, and is a Professional Residency Director with demonstrated competency in developing the communities for the Arts.

Deborah believes a Christian Education is essential.  The Bryson programs incorporate Christian Education through the Montessori approach in Bible stories and songs, mutual respect, kindness, trust, courtesy, and grace.  Children are required to be polite to teachers, to each other, and the environment. At Bryson Christian Montessori, we learn cultural diversity from each other, and learn that we are more than a classroom- we are a society where we experience the lessons of life.
