I have 2 kids, ages 4 and 5 that attend Stockton Stanford Montessori Preschool. My kids have been there since the school opened. Before finding this preschool, I searched for months for a place where they would not only "take care" of my kids but would offer a learning environment for my children. The Montessori Program was new to me, I didn't know what to expect from it. It is, thanks to this program and the 30+ years of experience of the directors and teachers that my two younger children are receiving a great, quality preschool education which is helping build a foundation for their future schooling. This school is not a daycare. The Montessori program has taught my kids to be caring, independent, explores, inquirers, and most of all, it promotes a learningn environment in which children learn at their own pace and challenges their learning and interests. The teachers are dedicated, caring, and loving individuals that value who they are and meet each chid's needs. Every day I am amazed of what my children learn at school. At 4 and 5 yrs old, my preschoolers are taught place value, addition, sentence structure, grammar, etc.... My 5 yr old will be attending Kindergarten for the 2013-2014 school year and I'm very thankful for the knowledge he will bring along with him. I highly recommend this Preschool to any parent looking for a quality preschool education.

Stockton Montessori School won me over very quickly and allayed all my fears. They have the perfect blend of academics, culture appreciation, and socialization. They foster independence, creativity, and a genuine pride in learning in all of their students. The entire staff is dedicated to guiding each child in discovering and maximizing their strengths while encouraging them to tackle new tasks/learning experiences they may not be familiar with. This staff also provides a very nurturing environment which I was very drawn to and one I had not observed with other schools when I was choosing a school for my daughter, I see the progress my daughter has mad. my Honey and I are amazed! She has become a confident, independent, and respectful little lady who loves to learn. She is excited to come home each day and share all she has learned and accomplished! I recommend this school with no reservations! Thank You w/LOVE Ms Kris, Ms Jodie, Ms Susie, Ms Seta, Ms Krystina Ms AmandaTatiana Corchon

This is such a great school! All of my nieces, nephews, and my own children attended there. If you are interested in providing your child a solid launching pad for learning, then this is the school for you! The seasoned teachers understand the different learning needs of all children, and create a wonderful balance in the classroom through music and movement, sensory awareness, consistency, routine, and structure. This school teaches to the "whole child", (not just "ABC's" and "1,2,3's"), which sets the foundation for wanting to learn! Some other benefits, too, is that they also have before and after school care, as well as, an AMAZING playground with sand boxes and water spickets (which my son could never resist!), swings, tricycles, an outdoor music center, and a large grassy area for lawn games, all under a canopy of shady oak trees! Love this school!
I was a student at there. Here's some experiende I've learned.Some bad and goodsBad:The students are over control! I remember vividly my first day of school. Yes, they did push and punch me. It was bad at first, but when I get used to it, they're become friendly. Still, criticism still happen in my whole entire school year. I think not only this school, but it's naturally that the bigger ones want to show up their power. Secondly, I'd like to see more meeds for different subjects. In order to encourages the students, not only go to school everyday will do. But how about "All A's All Year", or "Characteristicly Nice". Encourages them more, to be nice and to working hard. Good: Nice teachers, and simple. Like they all said, "Simple stuffs make people feel simply special."
