"My kid has been attending Santa Clara Montessori, and she loves it! The teachers are super loving and caring. The school is focused on Montessori learning and wholesome development and my kid is growing up to be more independent everyday. They pay attention individually to each kid’s development and suggests what needs to be followed at home too to help facilitate Montessori style independence. All the teachers take personal interest in your child and my kid loves going to school everyday and comes back home with a happy face. They are super honest and lets us know about my kiddos daily activities so that we can also continue that at home. I also love all the parent meet-ups and activities that gives us the ability to slowly get to know each other well. I highly recommend SCM."

"My child who’s 3 years old has been attending this school for about 11 months now and she has grown into an independent and confidence young woman (three-ne-ger). She made a lot of friends and talks about them at home. She has learned a lot as well such as apple has core, stem, skin, etc., planets, holidays, days of the week which she has them memorized and more. They do arts and craft with her which I barely do that because I don’t like the mess at home… she does her cutting job in school, she glues squares and diamonds, she has made soap for Mother’s Day, she has turned an acorn into a turkey and for each holiday and season, there’s always something so that’s always wonderful to see."

"I am extremely grateful to Santa Clara Montessori. Ms. Katie, Ms. Nicole, Ms. Cho, and Ms. Choi have helped me raise an independent, bright, and fully of life child... The teachers even helped potty train my daughter. It took about 2 months as my daughter was refusing to use the potty. During that process, the teachers were very patient with my daughter. The teachers never rushed her and gave us pointers on how to keep up with the potty training at home... The kids at school work on A LOT of arts & crafts. Every week my daughter would bring home multiple things she made at school... Thank you teachers for all your hard work. You’ve made such an impact on my child and I’m forever grateful to you all!"
