Fun Factoid about Montessori
Maria Montessori was born on the 31st August 1870 in the town of Chiaravalle, Italy. Her father, Alessandro, was an accountant in the civil service, and her mother, Renilde Stoppani, was well educated and had a passion for reading.

The Montessori family moved to Rome in 1875 and the following year Maria Montessori was enrolled in the local state school. Breaking conventional barriers from the beginning of her education, Maria initially had aspirations to become an engineer.

When Maria Montessori graduated secondary school, she became determined to enter medical school and become a doctor. Despite her parents’ encouragement to enter teaching, Maria wanted to study the male dominated field of medicine. After initially being refused, with the endorsement of Pope Leo XIII, Maria Montessori was eventually given entry to the University of Rome in 1890, becoming one of the first women in medical school in Italy. Despite facing many obstacles due to her gender, Maria Montessori qualified as a doctor in July 1896.

Fun Factoid about Dublin, California
San Ramon, California, is located in the San Ramon Valley east of San Francisco, in Contra Costa County. The valley was in early times a part of the land of the Seunen Indians. A mission was established in San Jose in the late 1700s, and the missionaries used the valley as grazing land. American settlers started to come to the area in the 1850s to farm.

The village of San Ramon developed quickly once the railway came to town in 1864. It ran from San Ramon through the valley to Oakland. During the 1860s a church was erected, a general store was built, and the San Ramon grammar school opened. A permanent post office was established in 1873.

During the 19th century San Ramon had several names, including Limerick, referring to the many Irish settlers. The arrival of the San Ramon Branch Line of the Southern Pacific Railroad in 1891 finally put an end to that. The name San Ramon comes from the San Ramon Creek that was named after an Indian vaquero known as Ramon. “San” was probably added to the name due to the Spanish influence in the region.


Dublin CA Preschool

The Dublin Preschool Program uses the Montessori method and provides a safe, nurturing atmosphere, allowing for a child’s freedom of movement and learning directed by a child’s interest. The attractive material in the classrooms allows the children to explore the world through their senses, through touch and motion, and by engaging with others in the classroom. One main focus of Montessori education (at all levels – preschool, daycare, childcare, and kindergarten) is its hands on approach to learning. Because your child is unique, our program is uniquely designed where children experience play, interaction, exploration, and growth.

For our Dublin Kindergarten Program we strive to support not only academic development, but our Kindergarten children learn to balance freedom and responsibility. Learning this balance is a big part of the child’s experience in Kindergarten program.  It is our goal to support the ongoing and unfolding development of these children, and in this new model we can easily meet the expectations of the Kindergarten year, but even more importantly, we can deepen their learning and social development which is so critical in making the next transition to an elementary program. In addition to our Montessori program in Dublin / Pleasanton, we provide a developmentally appropriate curriculum which prepares each child emotionally, socially, and cognitively for the first grade.

Highly trained and qualified teachers with accredited Montessori and early childhood education credentials guide students in the Dublin and Pleasanton school on an exciting journey of learning and self-discovery. Our staff provides highest quality standards in early childhood development by providing each child with new challenges, introducing new lessons and then letting the children practice what they have learned.  As children grow, teachers expand the classroom material in order to allow the children to further explore.
