Adobe Montessori, located in northwest Chandler, Arizona has been serving families of Tempe, Chandler, Mesa, Gilbert and Ahwatukee since 1982. Our early-primary program and primary classes are staffed with dedicated teachers and aides offering a high quality Montessori education. We also have extended care hours and extracurricular classes. The Montessori method strives to arouse the child’s interest; to stimulate, and to provide an individualized learning atmosphere. This is the “Prepared environment” which invites a child to get herself involved and puts her mind in gear. To catch the excitement inherent in discovery, and to know deep down that she did it herself because she felt the need to understand and to conquer a problem, is worth far more to a child’s self-image and development than to respond to never-ending teacher direction. The main objective of Adobe Montessori School is to provide a carefully planned, stimulating environment which will help children develop within themselves the foundational habits, attitudes, skills, and ideas which are essential for a lifetime of creative thinking and learning.
