Montessori School in Fremont, CA - 155 Washington Boulevard

At the Montessori School of Fremont, children from ages 18-months to 12-years develop a lifelong appreciation for learning.

Montessori schools apply the educational philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori, a renowned Italian physician and child educator. For over a century, her teaching approach has been proven and refined across the world, from Europe to Asia.

“It is necessary that the child teach himself, and then the success is great.”

- Dr. Maria Montessori PhD.

The Montessori method allows children to work and learn at their own pace.

Each child develops their own capacities in a noncompetitive atmosphere. Children of varying ages work together in the same classroom, stimulating both academic and social growth.

Montessori strives to develop each child’s potential through a "prepared environment."

Certified Montessori teachers prepare the classroom each day to encourage hands-on learning. Through the day, they observe the children, direct activities when outside assistance is necessary, and offer work according to the readiness of each child.

Though much has been said about the academic achievements of Montessori children, the main value of the educational method lies in the self-discipline, self-motivation, independence, and love of learning that the children achieve.

The Montessori School of Fremont is accepting new enrollment.

Please contact us to schedule a school tour. We welcome all children regardless of race, religion, or national origin.

Our programs are suited for children aged 18 months to 12 years. For the convenience of our parents, we offer childcare before and after school for which we are licensed by the State of California.

The Montessori History

In September 1974, Montessori teachers Cynthia Leahy and Naseem Meer held the first Montessori preschool class. It was held in a rented classroom at Our Savior Lutheran Church in Fremont, CA.

What started in a single classroom has grown to eight locations throughout the East Bay. Our schools have overseen the education of over 5,000 children. We employ over 100 people and care for over 500 students.


The children in this photo of a Montessori classroom are now in their forties. They include a physician, two attorneys, six engineers, a real estate executive, and a college professor.

Today, Montessori schools continue to set children up for a lifetime of success.
