San Tan Montessori’s Private Preschool is founded on the wisdom of Dr. Maria Montessori’s philosophy and work with children. While incorporating Love and Logic’s® nine essential skills, the Montessori peace table, and music, we further her vision of “Education for Peace.”

Our peaceful and happy prepared environments are alive with Music and Movement through the support of our thriving Music Together™ program.

The materials facilitate learning in a hierarchy from simple to complex and concrete to abstract. Teachers and assistants in each classroom carefully and beautifully orchestrate student’s optimal development through independent, small and large group learning opportunities.

From Simple to Complex and Concrete to Abstract

Engaging &
Encouraging

From the beginning children’s personalities flourish in our carefully prepared, developmentally appropriate, and fun learning environments.

Language, Socialization
& Partnership

Our children develop communication and socialization skills working within their multi-age classrooms. Teachers partner with parents to support each child’s ongoing growth.

Independence &
Concentration

Montessori is not a daycare, it is a learning environment where the child selects activities that spark curiosity, building concentration through preforming interesting work.
