Bringing Excellence
to Your Child Through Love for Learning

 

Early Years Excellence

We give children a solid foundation in life skills and confidence to achieve their full potential in the future. Our low teacher to student ratio ensures we develop every child individually as they need.

For Ages
18 Months - 6 Years

We adapt learning to different ages and encourage children to explore their interests, in addition to our STEAM-based curriculum, which has been embedded in the Montessori system for over 100 years.

15+ Years Of Experience

Our highly trained and dedicated teachers provide the support every child needs, guiding them to learn in a fun and engaging environment – in fact, we’ve had over 1,000 children join us so far.  All of our teachers are certified by the American Montessori Society.

 
Child-directed learning

A highly engaging and hands-on way of educating.

The goal of Montessori education is not accelerated learning, but such learning is often the result. Because children are naturally curious they’re given the freedom to explore and learn at their own pace, allowing them to fully develop their own capabilities. 

“We transitioned our oldest from Montessori into  traditional Kindergarten last year. She's in first grade now and still she's waaay ahead of the class”

Social Connectedness

Our multi-aged classrooms and diverse cultural environment allow children to encourage and take care of one another, learn how to share and improve interactions.

Testimonials

My 4.5 yr old daughter has been going to the new Evergreen Montessori center at Yerba Buena for about a year now. Both me and my wife are extremely happy with her progress. It is an extremely well run institution with excellent experienced teachers and a great curriculum. They focus on the complete development of a child starting from knowledge of sounds, continents, planets to language and math skills, as well as a healthy dose of music/rhymes and play time. We have noticed improved social skills in our child as well. Highly recommended!

My daughter has been attending EMS for a year and a half. Our experience has been great. Teachers are very affectionate and provide a very loving environment for the students. Also, the curriculum is very good! Kids learn about letters, sounds, numbers, blending of sounds leading to reading, addition, celebrations around the world, volcanoes, continents and much more. I have been amazed at how much my daughter has learned and developed socially. I would highly recommend this school!
