Mission and Vision


Our Mission


We nurture, inspire, and empower lifelong learners, global citizens, and environmental stewards who shape the world they inherit.


“Learners” = children with diverse backgrounds (ethnic, socioeconomic, learning styles/needs/abilities, with and without Montessori experience) from the greater Hayward community whose families seek and commit to a Montessori education




Our Vision


We envision a world where changemakers innovate, embody GRACE, and positively impact lives and communities.


GRACE = generosity, responsibility, advocacy, calmness, engagement




Our Beliefs


We believe the principles established by Dr. Montessori can lead to strong outcomes for children in terms of their academic, social, and emotional learning.


We believe that each child has true potential with a unique path of development.


We believe that a socially and emotionally supported student achieves greater academic success.


We believe a dynamic learning environment helps children become creative, active learners who think independently and work collaboratively.


We believe a holistic education results in students who are stewards of the earth, humanity, and the delicate balance between them.


We believe school should allow time and space for individual learning, exploration, true understanding, failure and problem-solving in a pressure-free environment.


We believe in supporting the development of the whole child in a safe, accepting, and nurturing environment.


We believe the diversity of our community is a strength to be celebrated and shared.
