We believe the first years of life, shape LIFETIMES. At our school, we proudly remain true to the core principles outlined by Maria Montessori. We believe in them. We see them working for children every day. We know this is the absolute best approach to early learning.
The Montessori system uncovered two universal truths – every child is unique and all children shape themselves as a reaction to the environment. Our school promoted this system since its inception. We are also proud to be the first and oldest Montessori based school in Santa Clarita, California.
The curriculum here is based around the idea that every child is smart in his or her own way. We focus on meeting each individual child’s developmental and educational needs. Children are guided and encouraged by our experienced teachers, and advance through each program at their own pace. Because children learn best when they are actively involved, classrooms include rich learning centers to explore. Self-directed investigations and play build problem-solving and critical thinking skills.
Our teachers supplement these experiences with large group activities that encourage socialization. We give children the foundations that prepare them for elementary school and set them on a path of life-long learning.
