Casa Montessori
Casa Montessori, located in Northridge, California, is a Full-Member School of the American Montessori Society and has been serving families in the San Fernando and Santa Clarita Valleys for over four decades. We welcome children ages 2 to 4.9 years old in our Primary program and children 5 to 12 years old in our Elementary Program. Casa Montessori was founded with the intent to build an excellent educational establishment through the application of the Montessori approach to teaching and learning.Casa Montessori, Inc., a California corporation, was founded in 1971, by Mrs. Sakura Long with the intent of building an excellent educational institution applying the American Montessori approach to learning. Prior to founding Casa Montessori, Mrs. Long had served as Principal of Montessori Schools, Inc. - the very first Montessori school on the West Coast! When Montessori Schools, Inc. dissolved, Mrs. Long was determined to find a home for the 150+ students that had been attending Montessori Schools, Inc. She was able to get a loan to build a school on Lassen Street in Northridge - our current school location. With a 14\\% interest rate on the loan, the early years were a financial struggle but her dedication to her students, and her conviction in the superiority and success of Montessori teaching methods fed her passion to not just survive but, thrive. Seven classrooms and one administration building were almost finished when students and faculty moved into this location on January 2, 1971. Not long after, Casa Montessori become a non-profit corporation. In 1985, our auditorium was completed; and in 1994, a library was added to our campus. Our last building was completed in 2008 and is home to our computer lab and a Teacher Training Center. Our classrooms were designed and are organized to provide an environment which will lead to the development of individual freedom, self discipline, and creative thinking.

Montessori of Chatsworth

You likely recognize these names because from an early age in life... they have used their Montessori and family upbringing to create great ideas to a world in need. This was a talent that was introduced to them early on as Montessori students. If you ever study Dr. Maria Montessori's philosophy and curriculum you will come to understand why she believed that each child has the capacity to perform great feats, we as adults need only to provide them with a proper learning environment and self correcting tools to allow that creativity to flourish What makes a Montessori school different? Let's start with the "nots" first. An authentic Montessori school is not a day care drop off factory. You will not find televisions with Dora DVD's, walmart toys or unmotivated teachers whose resume list babysitting as professional experience. At our school you will find age appropriate self-correcting learning materials, teachers not only trained in state mandated courses but also trained as Montessori teachers which usually requires an additional 2 years of training. You will find a parent community highly involved in their child's development and eager to make bonds with parents sharing many of the same ideals on childnrearing. lastly you will find school leadership solely focused on providing a complety safe and warm environment for your child to develop his/her academic potential at an individual pace without unfounded principles of all students should learn at the teachers pace. After decades of experience we can say with confidence Montessori education is not for everybody. However for families that embrace the curriculum, visions of Stanford graduations, successful entrepreneurial endeavors and/or humanitarian relief successes are attainable from the humble beginnings of your Childs Montessori training.
