Welcome to Valley Montessori School
Please take a moment to peruse our website. Visit the school. Meet our teachers and staff. Most importantly, peek into a classroom and witness children who are deeply and enthusiastically engaged in the love of learning. I’m confident the experience will be as transformative for you as it is for the children, and you will come to know what makes VMS among the premier Montessori communities in the United States.
Valley Montessori School in Livermore is the largest not-for-profit, and the only triple accredited school in California. We are accredited by the American Montessori Society (AMS) with non-traditional Montessori age groupings in Upper Elementary and Middle School, California Association of Accredited Schools (CAIS) and the Western Association of Schools & Colleges (WASC). Valley Montessori is a nationally recognized model of Montessori education, attracting the best and brightest educators and staff. Its state-of-the-art campus, including an edible garden maintained by the children, is situated on a hill with a stunning view of the entire Tri-Valley. Our commitment to sustainability and the environment has earned us a California Green Business Certification making us the only school in the Tri-Valley and just one of three in the state of California with this distinguished honor.
Visitors to the classroom are often struck by the inspirational surroundings, the kind and respectful guidance of teachers, and the infectious, intellectual curiosity displayed by self-confident and motivated students. Our team teaching and collaborative community approach to education—a process of developing the full and unique potential of every student in a safe and nurturing environment, inspiring children to dream, create, express, grow and thrive—is authentic Montessori. It is a time-tested approach proven effective for over 100 years.
At Valley Montessori School, we believe every student is unique and endowed with limitless potential for excellence and success. Again, I invite you to visit our beautiful campus. See how Valley Montessori School might be just the right fit for your child.
With Kindness and Respect,
Head of School
