Montessori Children's Place

Tel: (805)493-1177
Montessori Children's Place is "The Most Respected Montessori School in Town!" We offer a truly enriched Montessori curriculum." The child of three, four and five has one intuitive aim: self development.
He desperately wants to develop his resources, his ability to cope with a strange, complex world.
He wants to do and see and learn for himself, through his senses and not through the eyes of an adult.
The child who accomplishes this moves into harmony with his world.
He becomes a full person.
He is educated." The Montessori method of education is a unique cycle of learning designed to take advantage of the child's sensitive years, between 2-6 years, when he or she is able to absorb information from an enriched environment.
