Just as each child is unique; each Montessori school is unique!  Folsom Montessori offers beautiful, inviting classrooms with sequenced, hands-on learning activities encouraging thought, exploration, and creativity.
Children follow their own interests and take the time they need to internalize each experience.
In our classrooms, intellectual, creative, physical, and social growth flourish.

School Notes:

  • Folsom Montessori, founded in 1980, was the first Montessori school in Folsom.
  • Wonderful children and families have filled our school for 32 years!
  • As Montessori teachers, we are trained to know when to give guidance and when to step back and allow the children the satisfaction of their own work, discoveries, and successes.
  • Our low teacher/child ratio enables our experienced teachers to spend more time with each child.
  • We offer morning preschool classes: Mon-Fri  8:45 - 11:45     M/W/F or T/Th  8:30 - 11:30
  • The Afternoon Class is a combination PreK/Kindergarten:   Mon-Fri   1pm - 4pm
