Read Valencia Montessori School reviews
Valencia Montessori School uses pure Montessori Methodology as the platform to build from, but we offer a complete educational lifestyle that goes beyond it. We firmly believe in integrity, commitment, respect, beauty, balance, simplicity, education, curiosity, personal growth, power of words, intention and love as the guiding stars to our wholeness. Every day, I witness the positive impact in children, as organically they are guided to the discovery of their own, becoming aware about who they are, the stellar consequences of finding purpose in mundane things, and the pleasure of being treated as perfect beings in full development.
These evidences are real, they’re here, and they’re life changing. We know this because they changed our own lives. VMS is a place for all of those who want to be here, who feel they found home and who have the pleasure, privilege and responsibility to grow with us.
