Our School has been serving the educational needs of children in this
community since January, 1993. We are the first Montessori Private Preschool/Kindergarten in
the RSM, Coto de Caza, Dove Canyon area (Orange County, CA) with the majority of our
business being through word of mouth, not advertising. We are a family
run school with a warm, relaxed atmosphere. We focus on more than child care and place real importance on family values,
grace and courtesy, independent thinking, curiosity, self worth and
Our staff are all long term
professional Montessori teachers with most having tenure over 10 years
here. Every classroom is fully equipped with the Montessori Materials
and a Montessori Certified Teacher and an additional teacher who has a
minimum of an Associate's of Arts in Early Childhood Education. After a
staff member has been with us for over one year and does not have a
Montessori Teacher Certificate, we will pay for their Montessori
Certification program if they contract to stay with us for an additional
two years after their certification. That is why you see so many staff
members who have been with us for long tenures. In other words; we
"grow our own teachers!" We do this because we know that our school is
only as good as your child's teacher.
Montessori classrooms build upon each other in order for your child to
experience learning through a hands-on manner beginning at the age of
two and being reintroduced several times during the following years at
increasing degrees of abstraction and complexity. The children are
encouraged to explore their environment, to follow natural impulses in
discovering how things work, do their own research, and to express
themselves. Children are allowed to develop at their own pace, they
only compete with themselves and are free to make choices and create
their unique self. Natural impulse of compassion, respect, grace and
courtesy are built into the Montessori environment.
