The article reports on Asrary Children Center in Saudi Arabia. The article implies that the center, which offers a Montessori method of education, appeared to be parallel to their old custom of schooling and the new concept renders its students a bilingual and multicultural environment. Since its existence five years ago, the school has flourished with a waiting list because it is well established in the community. Included in the school's next plan is the development of holistic and bilingual Montessori model environment and the acquisition of resources for its active research projects.
