The goals of Diablo Valley Montessori School are to offer the community the educational alternative of the highest standard of Montessori education and childcare; build for each child a strong foundation of practical and academic skills; strengthen each child's self-confidence and courage to be creative by offering freedom of self-expression in a prepared environment; help each child to realize his or her full potential as a responsible world citizen; and promote the continued development and training of staff.
