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. It offers a unique, natural approach that encourages children to follow their interests.

Located in San Diego in Sorrento Valley, all of Kinderhouse Montessori School’s head teachers hold AMI diplomas in addition to Bachelor’s degrees. Many teachers also have their Master’s in Education. Low student-to-teacher ratios allow teachers to work one-on-one with each child, support natural development, and spark interest. Our dedication to Montessori makes us more than just a daycare or child-care provider. Not only do we focus on the best care and safety, but also on guiding our students to academic success.

From a Kinderhouse Montessori Parent:

  • Yogi is a tireless, dedicated, and talented leader who has proven herself to be not only an expert adminstrator as head of a successful school, but she has also demonstrated her abilities to inspire and motivate. She has been able to routinely rally volunteer support to assist her in extracurricular activities throughout the year.
