Welcome to Arbor View Montessori School

Arbor View Montessori School provides a warm, accepting, and safe preschool child care environment in Roseville. We are dedicated to the best care, attention, and warm learning environment. Naturally curious, children are eager to learn. Specially trained teachers guide development in Language, Creative Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Practical Life Experience helping children to reach their full potential.

Our carefully planned Montessori materials help develop the natural curiosity of the child that supports your child later in life as part of a continuous learning process even outside the classroom. Your child is motivated by natural curiosity from within. At Arbor View Montessori our program will inspire your child to develop their natural love for knowledge.

Dr. Maria Montessori strongly felt that children are individuals who differ from each other and must be respected, and that the purpose of preschool education is to help the child cultivate his or her own desire to learn naturally. Arbor View Montessori provides educational child care with a fun and safe preschool learning environment that is vital to the development of children.

At Arbor View Montessori School, our primary education utilizes mixed age grouping. This encourages healthy social development - older children learn to help younger children, and younger children learn from the example of older...
