The History Behind Montessori in the Park

Montessori in the Park (MIP) was created in 2007. The West Valley had the need for a program that would foster their children’s love of learning and provide a positive environment for their growth.

Each little difference at MIP has the power to change the world one child, then one family, at a time. If we do not do it, where will this change come from? Think about how our culture has changed since you were your children’s ages. While change is inevitable, it is up to us as parents, and members of the community, to ensure that the coming change is in a positive direction. The standard at MIP is one of compromise, getting along, helping one another, solving our differences peacefully all “because nice matters”. And in all of this, our students are learning more than you can imagine.
