About Our School Childrens school house

Our Mission

The Hillside Montessori School of Trabuco Canyon, Orange County, is a culturally diverse community of life long learners, offering a strong academic curriculum based on the Montessori Philosophy, fostering self-esteem, independence, empathy, and social consciousness.

Our Goal

The goal of our program is to nurture the unfolding of the child’s potential by providing love, security, encouragement, and appreciation of the child’s efforts. To achieve this, we provide a specially prepared Montessori environment where the child finds intellectual stimulation and the opportunity to learn by doing. This personal involvement and experience give the child a love of learning that he/she takes with them for life. By infusing the five human values that are fundamental to all human development – truth, right action, peace, love, and non-violence – into the curriculum, we establish a foundation in character, which is expressed in ethical personality, good self-esteem, and strong self-confidence.

We believe that facilitating the intellectual, physical, emotional, and socio-spiritual development of the child is essential to the harmonious development of the character and the progress of the individual and therefore of mankind. The philosophy of our school is based on the discoveries of Dr. Montessori and incorporates all the latest research on how children learn.
