Project Description



Our estudiantes are empowered with a bilingual Montessori education; a curriculum, teaching method & philosophy based upon the lifelong work of pediatrician Maria Montessori & proven effective by modern pediatric neurologists as well as researchers in education.

What does Empowerment look like at Río Valley Montessori?

  • Students are empowered to manifest their ideas and visions
  • Whenever possible, teachers or “guides” empower students to make decisions  
  • The “guides” give just as much help is necessary, not too much & not too little
  • The learning environment is carefully prepared, based upon skilled observation of each student, to include the materials & tools children need to teach themselves

We invite you to visit and see Río Valley empowerment in action!

“Children are human beings to whom respect is due, superior to us by reason of their innocence and of the greater possibilities of their future… Let us treat them with all the kindness which we would wish to help to develop in them.”
