Montessori de Terra Linda Open House January 20

January 16, 2018

Montessori de Terra Linda

Marin Mommies presents a sponsored shout-out from Montessori de Terra Linda.

Elementary students at Montessori de Terra Linda in San Rafael had an extraordinary opportunity to participate in Jane Goodall’s Roots and Shoots youth service program this year. The mission of Roots and Shoots aligns perfectly with our Montessori values – to foster respect and compassion for all living things, to promote understanding of all cultures and beliefs, and to inspire everyone to take action to make the world a better place for people, other animals, and the environment. Our students worked in groups to develop service projects to perform at school or in the greater Marin County community, and had the opportunity to present their projects to Dr. Goodall in person at a Celebration of Service in San Francisco. Our students were so proud of the contributions they made, and were inspired by meeting Dr. Goodall and contributing to her global leadership mission.

San Anselmo MontessoriMarin Mommies presents a sponsored shout-out from San Anselmo Montessori School.

At San Anselmo Montessori School (SAMS) we believe our children’s education is a responsibility school and parents share. There is a real family atmosphere, and the sense of community at work for the best possible school. We care about our children, our staff and each other. SAMS is dedicated to fostering a love of learning in children and providing a solid foundation for future learning. In an enriching and challenging educational environment each child is encouraged to grow to their fullest academic, emotional, and social potential.

Here is what a parent had to say about SAMS:

“SAMS offers children a wonderful balance of Montessori principles and playful learning. Warm, nurturing teachers oversee thoughtfully prepared classrooms. Multiple periods outdoors give students time for free play and opportunities to develop physical and social skills. Students help care for an outdoor garden, which has its own light-filled and airy classroom. The school also offers a Kindergarten year for its oldest students. This is a one-of-a-kind school and community worth getting to know.”
