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 compassion.  

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.

Our 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.
