Whether it's eating lunch under the beautiful canopy of a magnolia tree or figuring out how big a sand castle can get, our children love to socialize and explore their environment. Our home-away-from-home includes landscaped yards filled with hundred-year-old cedar and pepper trees, fruit trees, evergreen shrubs and flowering plants. At the Palo Alto Montessori School, children experience nature first-hand in an environment that speaks their language: 'Fun!'.
