Rainbow Montessori School primarily follows the methods developed by Maria Montessori in the early 1900′s. However, we incorporate current child development techniques into our curriculum as well. Maria Montessori was the first woman to receive a medical degree from an Italian University. Her work as a doctor led her to the understanding of children’s needs and to the development of a curriculum to answer
We are affiliated with the (AMS) American Montessori Society. The organization provides regular educational consultations. We are licensed by the State of California Social Service Department as well as the Department of Education. Evaluators visit our school regularly to ensure our compliance with all regulations.
Each class has a certified Montessori teacher and additional staff that meet or exceed student/teacher ratios. All teachers hold credentials in education. The director is also Montessori certified, holds her educational credentials and has been working in early childhood development since 1984.
Today is sadly our last day with Rainbow Montessori for my youngest son. I have two children and both of them have been with Rainbow Montessori for four years since moving to Danville. We have been at other schools in The Bay Area and this school by far, gave me as a working mom, peace of mind knowing that my children were well taken care of in addition to being prepped for Kindergarten for success academically. Miss Giti and her staff are caring, professional, flexible and personable. I highly recommend Rainbow Montessori without hesitation.TJ Dupont
