San Anselmo Montessori School has been serving the cognitive developmental and emotional needs of children two years and ten months to six years of age since 1971.
A child’s growth is positively influenced through a warm, caring and nurturing environment.
SAMS is committed to individualized education, allowing a child the freedom to develop at his or her own pace.
Our environment provides a varying degree of challenge from which a child may, with guidance, choose work according to their level of development.
Our goal is to provide a stimulating and safe environment in which children develop a love of learning, a high sense of self-esteem, and to acquire the basic skills necessary for a lifetime of learning.
San Anselmo Montessori School believe that children’s education is a responsibility school and parents share.
There is a real family atmosphere, and the sense of a community at work for the best possible school.
We care about our children, our staff and each other.
