The Mountain School

  • Since 1990 The Mountain School has provided Marin County families with a quality preschool and Kindergarten experience, based on the principles of Waldorf education, for children two-years-and-nine-months to six years of age.
  • Drawing from a deep knowledge of childhood development, our program encourages children to grow as whole human beings with balanced capacities to think, feel, and do.
  • By nurturing their creativity and self-reliance with our play-based curriculum, we lay the foundation for future academic learning and a desire to be fruitfully engaged in the world.
