  • Mountain Boulevard Montessori School was founded in 1983 to address, not only the demanding and complex needs of today's pre-school child, but the family as well.
  • The school was founded with four goals in mind. First, your child's school should be as environmentally and eco-friendly as possible.
  • Second, the school should be a safe haven for learning.
  • Third, the school should be educationally, cognitively, and emotionally stimulating.
  • Finally, your child's school is your family's partner in the educational process and should be ready to assist the family in addressing any issues affecting the student.

My husband and I viewed the previous review and decided to take a "look see" at this school. Boy, are we glad we did ! Our daughter just started and it was so thrilling to watch her jump right into the class. This is a great first step for my child. I highly recommend it.

This is the best value for quality Montessori education for a family on a budget. My husband and I toured all of the Montessori programs in Oakland and Berkeley. Most were at least $1600 a month and some were even much as $2100 a month. For environment, curriculum, and value Mtn Blvd Montessori is the leader. This is truly a best kept secret.
