Did you know that PVSchools offers a Montessori Preschool program at three locations - Desert Shadows Elementary School (with Suzuki Strings violin), Mercury Mine Elementary School, and Whispering Wind Academy (with Mandarin enrichment)?

If you’re researching preschool options, consider the philosophy and approach of a Montessori program. Our Montessori Preschool programs are based on the principles of Dr. Maria Montessori. Students in the program engage in critical thinking, discovery and creative invention in a unique setting that fosters growth. Classes are taught by experienced Montessori-certified teachers. 

Why choose a Montessori Preschool?

  • Montessori classrooms are designed to enhance and develop a child’s natural curiosity, creativity, and intelligence.
  • Montessori teachers closely observe students in order to determine their interests, strengths, and weaknesses and then create small group learning based on this unique understanding.
  • Trained Montessori teachers guide children through rigorous and innovative academic programs using logic and discovery that moves from concrete to abstract.
  • Montessori classrooms are places where children constantly share their thoughts, inspiring younger students, and learning from older students, which develops independence, self-confidence and a love of learning.
  • The Montessori environment is one in which children learn by doing in a place where movement and spontaneous investigation are encouraged.

The program is tuition-based and is open to children across the Valley. Schedule a tour of one of our Montessori classrooms
