Montessori Education in West Los Angeles

At Santa Monica Montessori School, our primary goal for the child is to cultivate their own natural desire to learn. This is approached two ways in the classroom. Each child is able to experience the excitement of learning through their own choice of lesson rather than being forced to do something. Secondly, we help the child shape their natural tools for learning, which can be used in future learning situations.

Dr. Montessori always emphasized that the hand is the chief teacher of the child. In order to learn how to concentrate, the best solution is to fix the attention of the child on a task performed by their hands. All equipment in a Montessori classroom allows a child to use their hands throughout the learning process. This tactile and kinesthetic system of learning permanently reinforces the skill to be learned. Muscular memory is a strong tool in the learning process.

Dear Parents,

We are now open and offering a wonderful Montessori Summer Program. We will be continuing the Montessori Academic Program with a variety of thematic activities which include science, building, cooking and art. Tennis Kids will schedule tennis lessons and we will have Mandarin classes. We hope you join us.

We have a health and safety plan in place and our staff is trained on safety and cleaning guidelines. We want to make coming to school a safe and comfortable experience for everyone.  .

Our summer sessions start on June 15th 2020 and continue until August 28, 2020.
