Montessori Schools

Are you confused about all the educational options in Sonoma County and want to know what school will be best for your child? Maybe you are interested in having your child attend a Montessori School.  

Maria Montessori developed an educational system that allows children mixed age classrooms, student choice of activities within a prescribed range of options, uninterrupted blocks of time to work, and a discovery model of education where children learn by working with materials, instead of direct instruction. Classrooms often offer learning stations where students can move freely and choose where they would like to work. 

Montessori also believed that education is integral to world peace and said, “Preventing conflicts is the work of politics; establishing peace is the work of education.” She was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize six times.
