Welcome to our Montessori School
The Montessori School of Modesto is dedicated to providing a nurturing and stimulating environment for children to grow, learn, and thrive. Our school has proudly served the Modesto, Ripon, Ceres, and surrounding communities since 1997 offering an excellent educational approach based on the principles of Maria Montessori.
We believe each child is a unique individual with limitless potential. Our experienced and passionate teachers foster a love for learning by creating a hands-on and child-centered environment. We offer programs for children from the age of two through kindergarten, providing a seamless educational journey during these critical early years.
We are dedicated to cultivating lifelong learners who possess a love for knowledge, strong character, and the skills necessary to succeed in an ever-changing world. We invite you to join our close-knit community and experience the transformative power of Montessori education.
Our School Programs
Your two-year-old is rapidly developing into a competent, independent child ready to face new challenges. Our excellent program is designed to meet, support and develop your child’s emerging skills. Our curriculum develops essential social, emotional, and cognitive skills.
Nurture your child’s interest in learning by exploring language, including reading and writing, mathematics, sensorial, practical life competency skills, and studying plants, animals, geography, land and water forms, and continents and oceans in a culturally inclusive environment.
Our exciting Summer School program alternates each summer from Human Anatomy - 2024, Solar System - 2025, and Invertebrate Animals - 2026. Models, puzzles, books and projects, and arts and crafts are a part of the experience for your child.
