"When searching for the correct preschool, I was surprised of the vast differences in preschool environment. Though I narrow my selection to Montessori schools (which share the same instructional philosophy) I was still surprised by the variation in environment upon observation. Class size, physical space, requirements for attendance, teacher/child ratio, meals etc. I tried to keep my sense of humor saying; "it is only preschool". I began to worry about how I would handle bigger parental concerns if preschool selection was throwing me for a coop. Then I found San Marin Montessori!
I knew after only minutes that San Marin  Montessori was the right school for my daughter. She has learned more than I thought possible at her age, my husband and I have learned so much from Magali as well.
San Marin Montessori has been a wonderful village where we as parents are brought together witnessing something to cherish a lifetime. Sometimes I wonder will I ever experience the continuity of social values so completely outside Magali's school. If not I can only give thanks that it has occurred during my daughter's formative years."
