Sunrise Montessori School - South Campus

Sunrise Montessori School was started in the home of Mary Ellen Marion in 1979.
The first year there were eight children in the class and fifteen on a waiting list.
A search was made for a church with space available to rent to our school.
Larkspur Christian Church on 33rd Avenue north of Cactus. Their Fellowship Hall was used for our school from September 1980 through June 1988.
In 1981, one of the first Montessori toddler programs in the valley was added. Mary Ellen and Ray Marion are the owners.
