  • Northwood Montessori Schools of Irvine was created to meet the increasing demand for the quality of our program.
  • This school serves toddlers from 1 year of age and walking and continues through the first grade.
  • Montessori Schools of Irvine programs are based on the strong foundation of early childhood education created by Dr. Maria Montessori.
  • This method recognizes that children are born with an "absorbent mind" the natural ability to learn by spontaneously absorbing knowledge from their environment.
  • Based on this respect and understanding of the child, the Montessori environment encourages the child to explore.
  • What they discover is an enriched world of beauty, peace, and interest to promote learning the natural way.
