About Our SchoolChildrens School House
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.
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
The Montessori Academy is committed to the concept of integral education. 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.
The program will be directed by teachers who are Montessori certified and are proficient in education theory and developmental psychology. Our teachers are trained to work with children on an individual basis. They are professionally accredited and meet all state licensing and department of education requirements.
