Fun Factoid about Montessori
Dr. Maria Montessori was a scientist and keen observer of children, constantly evaluating and quantifying her discoveries. Her theories continue to be tested today. Children happily and eagerly learn both life skills and academics, show care and compassion for their peers and their environment, develop refined and coordinated manual dexterity and fine motor coordination, and have an accurate sense of their own abilities, giving them confidence. We make these claims about Montessori, because we know from over a hundred years of hands-on classroom experience that it works.

Fun Factoid about Danville, California
The city of Danville, California has a long and captivating history. Located in the San Ramón Valley, it was first inhabited by the Miwok Indians of the bay, who lived near streams and camped on Mount Diablo in summer. In 1860, the Danville Post Office opened with hotel owner Henry W Harris as the first postmaster. Harris reported in 1862 that there were 20 people living in the city proper, and that 200 votes were cast in the last general election. Stories about California’s prosperity spread far and wide, and people from the Midwest and East began to settle in Danville and the surrounding valleys.

Most of the new settlers had been farmers and found that the land in the valley was fertile and that the climate was mild, making it an ideal place to live. The 1869 census counted nearly 1800 people in the combined Danville and Lafayette areas. They occupied or bought land from Mexican and other landowners and established ranches, farms, and businesses. Farmers built warehouses and transported crops by rail regardless of weather conditions, and residents traveled to and from Danville with ease they hadn’t experienced before. Housing developments such as Montair and Cameo Acres were built, water and sewer districts expanded their boundaries, and the new I-680 highway that crossed Danville in the mid-1960s permanently changed the landscape. The Danville Presbyterian Church was inaugurated in 1875, after a vote by Protestants on what denomination it should have.
