Discover Montessori de Terra Linda

An AMI Montessori School, ages 2 years through 6th Grade



Our Pre-Primary program is for children between the ages of 2 to 3 years and can best be encapsulated by the phrase, “Help me do it myself.”


Our Primary program is for children between the ages of 3 to 6 years. During the Primary years, a love of learning is nurtured, foundational academic skills are formed, and confidence blooms.


Montessori education prepares students for life. Our Elementary program, for children between the ages of 6 to 12 years (1st-6th grade), sparks the imagination, engages students in divergent thinking, and inspires live-long learners. 

Mixed-Age Learning

Children remain in the same classroom for a three-year cycle, which allows them to form a deep bond with their teacher. They have the opportunity to experience three different roles: the youngest, middle, and the oldest.

Beyond the Classroom

Elementary students are ready to explore their community and begin to seek information outside of their classroom walls. "Going Outs" are an integral part of our Elementary program.


We are so much more than a school. MdTL is a nurturing, supportive community for our students and their families.
