Montessori of Valencia

A School Where Students Learn as Much From Their Experiences as They Do From the Teachers

“The secret to good teaching is to regard the child’s intelligence as a fertile field in which seeds may be sown, to grow under the heat of flaming imagination.” – Maria Montessori

Welcome To

Montessori of Valencia

Montessori of Valencia is a culturally diverse community that respects and serves the needs of families by tapping into the natural curiosity of children. We aid in their development in a warm and welcoming environment.
The developmental stages from birth through elementary school are incredibly dynamic and as a school we support students and their families during this period of growth and change.
Montessori Education is both a philosophy of child development and a rationale for quality in that development. The special method, named for the Italian physician Maria Montessori, stresses the importance of the development of a healthy self-concept.  At The Montessori of Valencia we take an authentic approach to teaching Montessori methods while ensuring that our kids transition well into the traditional school environment.

“Never let a child risk failure until he has a reasonable chance of success.”      – Maria Montessori

What is Montessori?

The Montessori Method was developed in the 1900´s by Dr. Maria Montessori. She based her method on the premise that each child is born with a natural curiosity for life and its surroundings, and a drive to develop himself. A child learns best by using his senses and having the freedom to explore with materials that are a part of his prepared environment.

Dr. Maria Montessori devised the “prepared environment” to allow all children to work and develop at their own speed. In order to achieve this in a positive and successful method, Dr. Montessori designed various materials for the children to use individually. All materials / jobs are carefully made to self teach the child by having a “control of error”.

This “control of error” is what enables teachers to evaluate the child´s understanding and to correct the child without negative reinforcements, but with praise and encouragement to try it again.

The goal is to motivate and stimulate a child´s natural desire to learn.

“The child has one intuitive aim: self-development.”
– Maria Montessori

Our Team

Our teachers are carefully selected for their Montessori–based belief that children grow and learn best in a loving and nurturing environment. Their job is to encourage the child´s natural curiosity, to provide ample opportunities for exploartion and discovery. They help to direct the child to develop the skills needed to succeed and experience the thrill of independent accomplishment. Our Montessori teachers, in addition to having Early Childhood Education Certification, are all trained in the use of materials designed to stimulate discovery while developing the skills necessary for accomplishing tasks.
Our Director Mrs. Erin has a rich educational background which spans 20 years in both elementary teaching roles and executive administration in a directorial position.
“The child has a mind able to absorb knowledge. He has the power to teach himself.”
– Maria Montessori

Real Clients. Real Reviews.

I am beyond heartbroken and sad that my son had to leave this wonderful school. He will definitely carry on the amazing memories with him. If it wasn’t for us moving because of my job he would definitely still be enrolled in this school. He has been attending this school since he was 7 months I believe. He learned how to walk and count and much more at this school. We will absolutely miss everything about this school and mostly the teachers and friends we met throughout the years. Thank you so much for teaching my son above and beyond.

Where do I begin… MoV has been the BEST thing for my daughter. We are finishing a wonderful 2.5 years at MoV. I couldn’t be happier about my daughter’s education and social skills with her peers and teachers. Not only is she ready for kindergarten, I know she will excel during the rest of her educational career. She is now a life long learner.

Teachers who truly care for ALL children.  Dedicated staff and super appreciative to director Erin who has called me in the evenings and emailed me anytime with questions.  Great curriculum very child centered focused on student centered needs.  I would highly recommend!
