School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Montessori

Day in the Life

General School Mission

Carmel Valley Montessori School is based upon the philosophy of Maria Montessori providing a positive environment for growth and learning; offering experiences that enrich and enhance each child's cognitive, language, social, emotional, physical, creative and moral development. In a spirit of love and respect our teachers are responsive to each child's individual needs. Children have opportunities to create, explore the environment, learn problem solving and personal interaction skills, and learn concepts through
hands-on experiences at their own pace and interest level. This fosters independence, positive self-concept and enhances the child's natural love of learning.
