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.
