Preschool Program

For over a century, the Montessori method has utilized an unconventional educational philosophy and materials so powerful in their ability to shape a child’s cognitive development, that they have remained virtually unchanged. This educational process is found in all of our classrooms.

The Montessori Preschool Program is designed to facilitate the total developmental needs of the child: physical, intellectual, social, and spiritual. This is done through appropriate materials that are didactic, sequential, consistent, and varied. As the child's interests unfold and expand, Montessori allows the child the freedom to select individual activities that correspond to his own periods of interest and readiness to progress at his own pace. A child who acquires the basic skills of reading and arithmetic in this natural way has the advantage of beginning his education without drudgery, boredom, or discouragement.

Child to Teacher Ratio: 12:1

Lunch Program

Lunch is included as part of the full time Toddler and Preschool programs.

A breakfast program can be added at an additional fee.


News from Administration

COVID-19 Modifications as of March 16

Today, the Santa Clara County Health Department issued a “shelter in place” order, which can be found at :

Santa Clara County Health Officer Order

Although the order gives day care centers the option to stay open during this period of time, we have decided to err on the side of caution. Therefore, we will be temporarily ceasing operations and closing Rainbow Montessori, effective Tuesday, 3/17. This closure will likely be in effect through Tuesday, 3/31, and will be re-evaluated at that time. During our closure period, we will continue with our carpet deep cleaning and hard surface cleaning to ensure a safe environment upon our return.

Thank you for your patience,

Rainbow Montessori Administration Staff
