The Childrens Place Montessori

Tel: (310)328-6313
Grades: NS-6 | 58 students
Our school serves children from 18 months through 6th grade.  As a Montessori program we focus on each student as an individual, helping them to learn and grow in a way that builds on their existing skills to discover new abilities and interests.  We know that children are naturally enthusiastic learners, and they are learning every day - not just academic skills but also emotional and social skills.  All of these skills are intertwined and all are essential.  We also know that children learn best when they are truly engaged and can work at their own pace.  Our classrooms are very hands-on with lots of concrete experiences.  We want your child to love learning as much as we do!  We have been serving South Bay families since 1998 and many of our teachers have been with us 10 years and longer.   Our school community is dedicated to helping your child reach their full potential.
