School Notes

  • Folsom Montessori, founded in 1980, was the first Montessori school in Folsom.
  • Wonderful children and families have filled our school for 41 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. Our preschool classes have a maximum of 9 students/teacher. Our PreK/Kindergarten class has a mazimum of 10 students/teacher.
  • We offer morning preschool classes: Mon-Fri  8:30 - 11:30 or 8:45 - 11:45
