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.

Arbor View Montessori
In The Absorbent Mind, Dr. Montessori wrote, "The most important period of life is not the age of university studies, but the first one, the period from birth to the age of six. For that is the time when man's intelligence itself, his greatest implement is being formed. But not only his intelligence; the full totality of his psychological powers… At no other age has the child a greater need of an intelligent help, and any obstacle that impedes his creative work will lessen the chance he has of achieving perfection." The Montessori approach to early childhood education is a wonderful way to introduce problem solving both for a young child's brain and help work on their motor skills as well. At traditional preschools, or daycare Children often learn through play and through...

Color Tablets
The Color Tablets The child’s first introduction to color is a box containing six tablets - two red, two blue and two yellow. All the other tablets are the same size, shape and texture. They differ only in highly contrasting color. In this exercise, the child pairs the tablets and learns the corresponding names. This is a simple exercise used for the very youngest children in the class. The difficulty of the exercise can be increased by gradually adding more pairs of colors. Eventually, the child should be able to match and name eleven different pairs. As child masters the color tablet activity they prepare for the next activity, Grading for Colors, which teaches the child to distinguish differences in graduation of color. Grading the Colors For the next step the child may use...
