Chronological Age Versus Readiness

Montessori values each child’s uniqueness; because of this, Montessori schools may place students according to readiness, not age. The aim is always to place the child in the environment best suited to serving the developmental needs of the individual child.

Montessori in the Park does not discriminate based on sex, sexual orientation, race, color, disability, national origin, and ethnic origin or religious affiliation in administration of its educational policies, admission policies, scholarship and loan programs, and other school-administered programs. Students with physical or mental disabilities will be provided with accommodations consistent with Title III of the ADA, as stated in the MIP Family Handbook.

WHAT PARENTS SAY ABOUT US

I love, love, love this school! My family was looking for an alternative education for our son and he's been here since kindergarten (3 years now). We plan to keep him here as long as possible. The staff is friendly, small campus, one-on-one attention, and they do what they can to make it affordable for families. We'd highly recommend them to West Valley families.

Such an amazing school! My 4yr son has sensory issues and this school has been amazing for him. He has opened up significantly and has just grown so much because of the teachers and staff at this school. The fact that I am able to have a constant communication with his teachers as well as the option to be fully involved with this school makes it a perfect choice for me and my family.

Melissa Janton

Parent

The teachers are passionate about the learning process and uniquely gifted in bringing out the best in each child. I'm especially grateful for the community, friends and relationships we've built.

My two children love going to school every day... I only wish she would have gone here sooner. It is an amazing school that does not apply the one size fits all rule to education.
