Learn more about our convenient child development programs

Montessori Explorer is an academic institution dedicated to the social and physical development of young children, following the philosophy and methodology of Maria Montessori. The classrooms maintain low teacher-student ratio to foster our principles and philosophy of high-quality education to bring out the optimum potential in each child. Montessori Explorer utilizes the renowned Montessori Method to educate children, thereby, enhancing each child’s social, emotional and cognitive skills while focusing on his or her individual development.  The school's primary goal is to foster the whole child to their full potential.


Montessori Explorer celebrates its 14th anniversary this year that coincides with the celebration of the sixth anniversary of opening its lower elementary program.  Montessori Explorer is the first and only Montessori elementary program in the South Bay area serving Chula Vista, Bonita, Eastlake, San Diego, National City, Spring Valley, Santee area and Tijuana. The School has since opened an upper elementary to serve children up to sixth grade.


Learning with Montessori core principles

The core principle Montessori Explorer follows is the most central to the Montessori philosophy.  That is allowing each child to develop at his or her individual pace.  The 'miracle' stories of Montessori children far ahead of traditional expectations for their age level reflect not artificial acceleration, but the possibilities open when children are allowed to learn at their pace in a scientifically prepared environment.


Montessori Explorer prides itself for having some of the finest and experienced Montessori Credentialed teachers and small class sizes.  Our student-teacher ratios are so low you will not find another school to match Montessori Explorer.  Our student-teacher ratios do not take into account the interns we mentor each year. The academics are far beyond any other school in the South Bay area.  See the parent testimonials and visit the school to watch the skills of children.


A focus on specific areas of learning

Through the past fourteen years, Montessori Explorer has produced young, competent learner whose abilities have far surpassed the conventional public school education.  Children are given the tools to excel themselves in a carefully prepared environment in areas such as Math, Language, Sensorial, Practical Life, Geography, History, Zoology and Botany. The knowledge of each subject exceeds what young adults know in some of the upper elementary levels.
