We provide exceptional education and a solid foundation for life-long learning!
Our small, individualized classes focus on character development and honor and respect the child’s spirit as well as the child’s love of learning. Students progress at their own pace with loving guidance and are adequately prepared as they move on to their elementary years.
We are on the beautiful campus of the Creekside Community Church in Alamo with ample parking, big lawns, trees, and wild turkeys. But we are neither a religious school nor affiliated with the church.
All our teachers are either trained or currently in training by the American Montessori Society.
Director and Lead Toddler Instructor.
Marnie is a Danville native who has been our director and the lead instructor in the toddler program since 2006. She has great compassion for the Montessori philosophy and is a wonderful guide and parent educator. She believes that every child should have the privilege of a Montessori education, especially during early childhood.
Professionally, Marnie has been teaching as a Montessori preschool teacher since 1996. She graduated from Holy Names University with a BA in Psychology, minoring in Child Development. After college, Marnie started teaching in a play-based program where she soon learned about the Montessori method. She ultimately fell in love with the philosophy and began to pursue her Master’s degree at St. Mary’s College in Early Childhood Education where she received her Montessori training.
Outside work, Marnie enjoys traveling, reading, music, cooking and spending time with family.
We take COVID 19 seriously.
We understand the concern by offering you the max flexibility. We do not require a security deposit nor annual tuition obligation. You pay month by month and may switch to our zoom program or withdraw at any time with 30D notice.
All teachers take monthly COVID 19 tests. Only negative permits classroom teaching.
Each classroom only admits max nine children, which provides sufficient space for the children and allows the teacher to give more attention to every child.
We equipped each classroom with GermGuardian Air Purifier with UVC light that kills the airborne virus and fights the smoke.
We have both classroom and outdoor settings that provide an excellent opportunity for fresh air.
We have all the necessary PPE plus touchless thermometers, touchless sanitizer dispensers, and touchless trash cans.
We ask all enrolled families to have one adult member to take monthly COVID 19 tests as well. Only negative result allows classroom attendance.
