About Us

The Montessori School of the Valley, established in 1983, is privately owned by Elaine Maloney and operated by her and a faculty of experienced and dedicated Montessori certified teachers.

Montessori School of the Valley, Coachella Valley’s oldest Montessori School, is dedicated to the philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori in the belief that her teachings provide a scientifically based system which not only aids the child during early development but throughout life.

The Montessori philosophy is based on love for the child, respect for the child’s dignity as a person, and a strong desire to help the child realize his or her fullest potential in society.

The best proof of a Montessori education is found in it’s graduates. Our students have gone on to study at some of the country’s finest schools and universities.

The future of the world depends upon preparing today’s children for tomorrow. Consider this unique learning experience if your child is 2.6 years to 9 years old and you want:

  • an environment through which children can fulfill their human potential
  • to nurture intellectual curiosity
  • to have your child experience the joy of learning
