New Campus Built From Scratch in South Fremont
Our new South Fremont campus has been built from scratch and has only recently opened. We are open all year round as opposed to the public schools which seem to close for most of the summer, and the day begins at 7.00 am and goes on until 6.30 pm which is ideal, because it fits around pretty much whatever your working hours are. You can just drop your child off on the way to work and collect again on the way home.
With the Montessori method of learning, the children are allowed to choose for themselves what they wish to learn about by selecting from the huge stocks of Montessori materials that are to be found in every classroom. This works very well because each child is studying something which he or she finds interesting and this soon develops into a love of learning for the sake of exploring and finding out more.
If you are a parent who commutes up the I-680 and are looking for the best Montessori preschools in Milpitas, California, we would be delighted to welcome you to Learn And Play Montessori for a school tour so that you can see how well our children are doing and we can answer all your questions.
