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.
The role of the Montessori teacher is to aid children in their natural development and to support them in developing his or her full potential.
This is achieved by carefully observing each child in order to assess and meet their individual needs.
