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.
