Garden Montessori School

Garden Montessori School is a corporation, licensed by the State of California to serve 24 children ages 3-6.
We try to provide each child with a structured environment in which he can freely develop.
Structure is important in order to set boundaries that help the child focus on the task at hand.
With clearly defined limits, a child is free to act without continuously needing to test the limits.
Children are very accepting of limits if they are explained, understood, and consistent.
Freedom is necessary in order for each child to be able to develop at his own pace, to choose the activity that interests and challenges him at a particular point in his development.
With a range of almost three years within the group, the skill and interest level is different for each child.
