Sunshine Acres Montessori School, 2141 Maple Lane, is operating under the management of TFI Family Services, part of the nonprofit agency's efforts to diversify its services.
TFI Family Services has more than 40 years of experience working in behavioral health child welfare, including foster care.
TFI has had an office in Lawrence for the past 16 years, serving families dealing with foster care and adoption issues.
Sunshine Acres, licensed for 100 children, has operated for 35 years under the "superb leadership and professional commitment" of Susan Mozykowski, the school's founder and director, said Kathryn Efinger, director of project development for TFI.
"We will continue that legacy," Efinger said.
