Montessori-Inspired Programs

Our Montessori-inspired educational and enrichment programs integrate the fundamental principles of the Montessori Method with an immersive farm- and nature- based learning environment.

Programs serve preschoolers to high-schoolers through after-school enrichment programs, summer camps, field trips and integrated curriculum for preschools.

Sustainable Communities Events

We are passionate about connecting with our young community members through events and activities that focus on environmental sustainability and Sonoma County’s diverse cultural heritage.

Children and youth are welcomed for classes, volunteer opportunities, special events and more.
