Founder & Executive Director

The Montessori School of Silicon Valley

Hi, I am Colleen Noll, Founder & Executive Director of The Montessori School of Silicon Valley.  Founder Executive Director Montessori School Silicon Valley 
Each of our four campus locations has a slightly different mix of programs and age groups, serving children as young as six weeks old through Lower Elementary.

My vision of “Children First, Always” is at the forefront of everything we do – suprisingly not every Montessori school is alike in this way. This focus on the child coupled with our committment to a fully implemented Montessori Program very much set us apart, particuliarly from most other programs in the south bay.

In addition to our vision, our schools are clean, inviting and welcoming.  We have assembled a staff of wonderful Montessori Teachers, by focusing on recruiting teachers who love children, have a passion for the Montessori philosophy and who demonstrate a desire to continue growing as individuals as well as professionally.

I began my career as a Montessori Administrator in 1992 and am a formally trained AMS Montessori Teacher who leveraged my background in Business Mangement to found my first school, Calaveras Montessori, in the year 2000.

When Calaveras Montessori first opened, one of my favorite activities was working in the children’s garden – which I had the wonderful opportunity to enjoy for several years. Being a part of the process of discovery with the child has been a priceless experience for me.

This hands-on background keeps me connected to the child and the classrooms. I believe that I can share my vision of “Children First, Always” in each and every classroom in our schools.

Over the years we have expanded our offerings to include enrichment activities such as gardening, dance, cooking, and art.  All of which has proven to be a very popular feature of our schools with children, parents and our staff alike!

Thanks for visiting our website.  We hope to see you at one of our Montessori School of Silicon Valley campus locations in the near future.
