2016 Readers Choice

Country Montessori School in North San Diego / Poway has been helping children develop their physical, intellectual, and spiritual powers to the fullest since 1989. We are WASC Accredited, and a full member of the American Montessori Society. Country Montessori School program encompasses learning for children of preschool, kindergarten and the elementary ages.

Our classrooms are specially designed “prepared environments” which allow each child to develop at their own speed, according to their capacities. Our credentialed Montessori teachers work with each child individually and in small groups, fostering competence and independent learning.

If you’re unfamiliar with the Montessori Method, we invite you to click some of our links to learn more about how this child-centered learning stimulates and motivates children, making the most of their natural love of learning. And how the curriculum at Country Montessori School prepares a child for further education when they graduate to Middle School and beyond.

And if you’d like to see the Montessori Method in action, please call us and schedule a tour with our Director of Admissions and Enrollment so you can decide if Country Montessori School is the right place for your child.
