WELCOME TO EVERGREEN MONTESSORI
Evergreen Montessori is dedicated to serving the San Jose Parent children community. The school was established over fifteen years ago with the Montessori Philosophy as its guiding principle. Evergreen Montessori School is affiliated with AMS (American Montessori Society).
Mission & Philosophy
Our mission is to create an environment for facilitating the unfolding of the human potential. We provide an educational environment that fosters an enthusiasm for learning and encourages children to reach their fullest potential.
We strive to provide the highest quality Montessori preschool education available; emphasizing basic academic disciplines and promoting the development of independence, self-respect and courtesy for others.
We believe in the process of life-long learning as an exciting journey. Each child possesses an innate sense of order, which develops as the child explores and defines the world. The child absorbs the world and learns by doing. Our focus is to provide academics that enhance critical thinking, life long discovery, inner discipline, positive social interactions, concentration, and task completion.
Our Teachers are caring, compassionate and have an innate love for children. Every one of our teachers are also trained and certified by AMS - American Montessori Society maintaining our Evergreen Montessori standards of education.
We ensure that our teachers are able to offer individual attention to every child by maintaining low teacher to student ratios - one teacher for every 4 to 7 children in all our classrooms.
At all times, a CPR certified staff member is present.

Teachers act as facilitators. They create a space for nurturing inquisitiveness and guide children in discovering multiple answers to every wonder.
EMS believes in taking every opportunity in bringing nature to the classroom - so kids love to touch, respect and nurture life.
As part of Practical life experiences, our little ones cut vegetables with specially designed knives, kneed, pound and whisk while enjoying making food and refining their motor skills.
Learning to observe and imitate sounds is a great way to boost balanced brain development. Music is an integral aspect of EMS curriculum.
At EMS, children learn to organize themselves from start to finish. Equal importance is given to being involved during an activity as well as learning to put things back where they belong as part of completing any activity.
Much is expressed in colors - their feelings, emotions, and more importantly the subtle aspects that are lost in communication get full expression through their unrestrained artwork.
At EMS, kids get to creatively express their understanding, ideas, thoughts and feelings through art work. It is a wonderful extension of subtle communication beyond verbal communication.
At EMS, we believe in caring for Nature - We encourage children to gain care and concern by learning about everything that nourishes and sustains them.
At EMS, we believe a strong healthy body and a stable mind is essential in creating the perfect environment for learning. Solid academics are balanced with soft skills, enhancing both left and right brain activities.
Celebrating diversity nurtures the sense of inclusiveness and creates greater perspective towards growing up as harmonious global citizens.
EMS children enjoy celebrating special events and festivals across various cultures...
