The mission of MSOSV is to develop the “whole child” by providing an enriched environment in which children can grow to fulfill their individual potential. Activities in the Montessori classroom promote social skills, emotional growth and physical cognitive preparation as well as artistic and academic excellence.

Core Values

The MSOSV leadership team met recently to revisit our core values and considered how those values impact our school community every day. The resulting “CARING” model came effortlessly and directly reflects the fact that our team is made up of people who care about others; always showing kindness and concern, making an effort to do their very best. This makes it easy for us to follow our motto of “Children First, Always”.

  • Calaveras’s low student-to-teacher ratios, along with the flexibility and skill of the teachers, have allowed each of my children to flourish, even though they have different personalities and learning styles. I’m convinced that Calaveras gives them the solid foundation they’ll need to be successful in their future endeavors.

  • The campus is well kept and the classroom is clean. The play area is spacious and the gardening section is very cute too! Families are asked to pay an annual materials fee, but I feel that the fee is justified as the materials used in some of the art projects appear to cost more than the average materials like crayons and construction paper. The school partners with several independent providers who offer extracurricular activities which are very convenient (e.g., drum class and soccer). Overall, my son is in good spirits and returns home from school very happy. He even asks my husband to pick up our other son first so he can spend more time at school! We believe that Cabrillo Montessori has played an important role in building his communication and interpersonal skills as well as his motivation to help around the house and try new activities. I recommend Cabrillo Montessori for any parent looking for a balanced, fun, and educational community for their child.

  • My daughter has attended Crescent for 3 years since she was a Pre-Primary. Her teachers have always been patient and dedicated. The director and staff have been caring and loving. It continues to amaze me how my daughter has grown and learned so much since she started at Crescent. We are thankful to have found a program that allows my child to be eager to learn, be creative and self-dependent. We did not hesitate to let our daughter continue in the Kindergarten program at this school because we know she will continue to flourish!

  • I love everything about Cantera Montessori! Our son is always so happy to go there and the school is really clean. The teachers are amazing, highly skilled in early childhood, they care about the children different needs and tailor activities to the child's preference and interest. Everyday we receive progress updates and photos from our son, which is really nice. The school has been very profesional, keeping track of our son's progress and keeping us updated on every detail. I highly recommend this wonderful Montessori school!
