Montessori Child Development Center

  • Our school has been serving children, from 3-6 years old, in Poway since 1978.
  • We are a homey program on almost 2 acres in Poway, "the City in the Country".
  • In 2007 our associate Montessori program for Toddlers (18-36 mos) opened next door.
  • We can answer questions regarding enrollment for both programs.
