Montessori-Based Childcare

San Jose, California

Our Montessori toddler program is for children ages 2 to 3. In this class, your child participates in hands-on activities, free play and what every toddler should enjoy—fun! We offer a few different toddler programs: full day, half day, morning care, afternoon care, or two and three full day care. We carefully select our teachers based on their qualifications, experience, friendliness, sensitivity, and more. So whether your toddler is here part time or full time, you can rest assured knowing that they are in the very best hands.

Our Montessori toddler class implements activities and curriculum that align with the principles of the Montessori Method of Education, even in our toddler class. At this age, our goal is to encourage your child to learn in the way that suits him or her best so that learning is fun.

Our Montessori preschool class is for children ages 3 to 4. In the preschool program, your child participates in hands-on activities that promote independent learning and discovery. Children can attend preschool for full days or half days, or for a few full days each week. Our Montessori preschool curriculum includes hands-on activities designed to spark creativity and imagination, while giving your child the freedom to explore what interests them. At the same time, we give children the opportunity to participate in activities that develop fine motor skills, gross motor skills, social skills, and more.
