Welcome to Aldea Montessori – “A Children’s Village”

“To consider the school as the place where instruction is given is one point of view. But to consider the school as a preparation for life is quite another.”
- Dr. Maria Montessori

Aldea Montessori is an Association Montessori Internationale (AMI)-accredited school in North Phoenix that nurtures and educates children ages 18 months through 9 years (Preschool thru 3rd grade) in the tradition of Dr. Maria Montessori.

“Aldea” is the Spanish word for “village”, which describes the atmosphere in our environment. Through consistent and loving examples, our children learn independence and interdependence, each becoming a member of the village. They learn to accept responsibility as a member of the community.

Our administration and staff, who together represent over 75 years of Montessori teaching experience, work together with parents to create the village.  We share common values and assumptions of what we expect from a learning environment and what we intend for the children to achieve.  Our Core Assumptions and Life Skill Objectives define our vision. We welcome your call to arrange a visit.
