Chase Ranch Montessori School Welcome to Chase Ranch Montessori School We have your child's developing needs in mind as we provide a multi-sensory academic learning environment with the child as its center. The teaching technique is based on the Montessori Method, named after the originator, Maria Montessori. Individualized lessons, small class size and multi-age grouping enhance a non- competitive learning approach where socialization, academics and psychological needs meld into the education of the whole child. A warm, cozy, home-like environment with rambling grounds and country gardens provides a safe, unique setting for a gentle transition from home to school in the early childhood years.   Chase Ranch Montessori School is licensed by the State Department of Social Services to accept children between 2 1/2 and 6 years of age, regardless of race, color, religion or national origin. All children are enrolled on a two-week trial basis. Our school is licensed to accept children who are physically handicapped or developmentally disabled, provided that we are able to meet the needs of each individual child. Chase Ranch Montessori is affiliated with the American Montessori Society. Please view the adjacent video to learn about the Montessori method in general and to give you some excellent background information so you can more easily appreciate our school.
