Your Child’s Home Away From Home


Learn more about our Montessori Experience

Del Mar Montessori is a healthy, happy, educationally sound community for children ages 5 – 14 years. Children choose work independently or work in groups. They learn though classroom activities to respect themselves, the environment, and other community members.

Here at Del Mar Montessori, we focus on activities that let children actually USE all their senses. We create a program of sensory activities that really build the child’s brainpower. We let the students explore their learning environment at their own pace and will. By doing this, each learner developed a sense of independence and self-confidence at an early age while learning.

We have been providing a Montessori elementary education in San Diego since 1985. Our years of experience in this industry taught us how to deal with the changing tides of learning. As time passes different learning and teaching methods must be developed and integrated into our program.

But we do the integration and innovation without actually breaking away from the original teaching principles and methodology of Montessori approach while implementing its core values.

At Del Mar Montessori School we believe that children learn best when they feel safe and comfortable in their learning environment. That is why we provide a safe classroom environment where young learners feel physically, emotionally, and socially comfortable to roam around. They must feel that they can be themselves so as to facilitate their learning effectively.

If you are planning for a Montessori school for your child, Del Mar Montessori School is your best choice.

“Hello Guys, This is Ismael, one of your former students. I just wanted to contact you to tell you how grateful I am to you all for the perspective you’ve given me on life in general… I miss the school terribly and I am so glad to see that it is still flourishing and evolving. Thanks to you, I have found the courage to try my luck with music (by the way, I’m still studying) … Thank you  for everything, really, I hope the school keeps on going and continues sending the good vibes and teaching our youth.”

“Del Mar Montessori was my child’s second home for 7 years. When he entered middle school I was worried that maybe he wouldn’t be ready. He had attended such a different school than I had. He tested very well and went into honors classes. He brought home straight A’s and said it is the easiest thing ever. We did make the right choice for our youngest child. The school is an amazing place.”

“When our children entered Del Mar Montessori it was to have fun for a year and then go public. We stayed for 8 years and never regretted one minute of it. Both of our girls have been at the top of their high schools. But there is something even more important, they approach everything in life with such a clear and keen interest and have profound respect for so many people and things. You honestly can not do better.”
