Rainbow Bridge Montessori School is a private school which offers the finest early childhood education in the tradition of Dr. Maria Montessori. The school provides a prepared and nurturing environment that allows the physical, intellectual, and social growth of each young child.

Dr. Maria Montessori was Italy's first woman physician. Through her work with disadvantaged children, she realized that each child has a desire to learn through exploration and self-discovery. She devised an educational system based on the natural development of young children.

Rainbow Bridge provides:
  • A quiet, calm, warm, and loving atmosphere in which the children can develop and grow.
  • An emphasis on the joy of learning, the child's self-esteem, respect for our environment, and social responsibility to others.
  • The careful guidance by experienced teachers to help each child develop his or her potential through purposeful work.
  • Attractive and scientifically devised materials for self-paced learning, discovery, and independence.
  • An environment that nurtures the children's self-discipline, concentration, belief in themselves and each other, while developing an appreciation for their world.
  • Subjects include: Phonetic reading, writing skills, mathematics, Spanish, practical living skills, sensorial explorations, science, art, movement, music, and gardening.
"The child of three, four, and five has one intuitive aim: his self development…He wants to do and see and learn for himself, through his own senses…In our school's special environment, the children themselves expressed their inner need: 'Help me to do it by myself!'"

- Dr. Maria Montessori (1870-1952)
