General School Mission

"The goal of Healdsburg Montessori is to provide a stimulating educational environment that will help our children develop within themselves the foundation for a lifetime love for learning.
This love for learning is the basic idea behind the Montessori Philosophy. Founder Maria Montessori believed that the goal of early childhood education should be to cultivate the child's own natural desire to learn. She developed an innovative philosophy and method based on this simple idea.
