About Kinderhouse Montessori School

Since 2001, Kinderhouse Montessori has been providing top-quality, AMI-certified Montessori education in San Diego. We are committed to staying true to the methodology developed over a century ago by Dr. Maria Montessori and is based on the research and observations of the learning tendencies of children. The Montessori method takes place in a prepared environment and is structured to maximize a child’s independent learning and exploration.
