Explore Thacher Montessori School’s community of joyful learning.
Thacher is dedicated to nurturing children’s innate love of learning and preparing children to succeed in all aspects of their lives. Our Montessori teachers, or “lead guides,” offer a comprehensive academic curriculum adapted to each child, a supportive environment that fosters self-confidence and independence, and a community that nurtures a child’s spirit by demonstrating respect for others and celebrating diversity.
Each classroom provides a stimulating environment where children are inspired to explore and seek out new knowledge and confidently reach their academic potential. We integrate core knowledge areas with Spanish, the arts, and the world beyond the classroom walls. Certified lead guides use a full array of Montessori materials to challenge each child at their own level. Thacher’s cheerful classrooms are filled with natural light and most have easy access to the outside environment. The children in each classroom fall across a two- or three-year age span, which helps them develop leadership, interpersonal skills, and a sense of community.
At Thacher we strive to ensure that each child develops the collaborative, problem-solving, and critical-thinking skills necessary for their personal success in life. Well prepared for their academic future and challenges ahead, our graduates transform other learners around them and shape their next learning communities.
