our parents’ voices

Miss Rachel,

We love the Montessori School of Redding! All three of our children attended/are currently attending and we can’t say enough good things about the wonderful staff and program.
The teachers are warm, nurturing and truly dedicated to creating a very happy, creative and intellectually stimulating environment. Our older children acquired academic and practical skills that prepared them well for Kindergarten but, most importantly, they developed a genuine love of learning, curiosity about the world around them and many special and enduring friendships. We are thrilled that our youngest child can’t wait to get to school each day- it is truly a joyful experience for him. Thank you Montessori School of Redding!


Our son enjoys Redding Montessori so much that I have trouble getting him to leave! The tender loving staff plus the nurturing introduction to learning that focuses both on independent exploration and group collaboration is what has us coming back year after year.”

With happiness and grateful 🙂

This school is perfect for our son. He has grown socially and looks forward to school each day to see his friends and teachers. We see firsthand how supported, safe, and comfortable our son is at the Montessori School of Redding.


For the past two years, our boys have thrived at Montessori. The teachers are nurturing and completely devoted to our children’s education and well-being. Since starting at Montessori when they were 18 months old, our boys have learned the importance of both sharing and independence, and our older child is now beginning to learn to read and write via the Montessori method, which is gentle, encouraging and effective. The kids are always excited to go to school in the morning, and we couldn’t be happier.


Miss Rachel,

Thank you again for all you did for us this school year. You helped us get over our fear that our child would never be comfortable at school! It was a long six weeks of stress and concern when we dropped her off. It’s amazing to now see the transformation as she grows more mature each day. I can’t say enough good things about you and your school program. Our daughter is really looking forward to the three days in the fall.

Thanks again.

Hi Rachel

In case it isn’t totally obvious – Linus is loving school. Thanks for such a great year so far.

A Happy Parent


Thanks so much for the great year and for being so instrumental in helping us to make the right decision for Elizabeth. She adores you and learned so much this year.


Thank you so much for all you’ve done to make school a fun, loving, fantastic experience. We can’t wait for next year.


My daughter started Montessori School of Redding when she was two-and-a-half. I have always said to every parent who asks me, “If you can give your child a Montessori education, especially at a young age, it is the best gift that you can give.” I was looking for a part-time toddler program and I wanted to feel very comfortable with the teachers with whom I would be leaving her and know that she was being loved, educated, and nurtured. I also wanted a program which would help my daughter not only with the transition to pre-school, but also with the eventual transition to public school. With Montessori School of Redding, all of my requirements for my daughter’s first school were met, and then some. My daughter loves going to school, adores her teachers and friends, and is learning something new every day. I am thrilled that, at the age of four, she is learning her letter sounds, can sing patriotic songs and do math, is blossoming socially, and will; without a shadow of a doubt, be ready for Kindergarten when the time comes. Miss Bev, Miss Lindsay, Miss Rachel, and Miss Sarah are all teachers who my daughter adores, and she looks forward to seeing them every day- during vacations, she always tells me that she misses school and wants to go back!

Our decision to send our daughter to Montessori School of Redding was absolutely the right one, we are confident that we have given her the right start in her education, and that she will meet all of her future educational challenges with the confidence that she has learned at Montessori School of Redding.



Dear Rachel,
Thank you so much for all the time and energy you give to our daughter. She is so happy to be at school because of you. We are so lucky to have such an amazing place to begin her education


We are very sad to be saying goodbye to Montessori. I can’t say how nice of a time Dylan and myself had these past two years. It’s such a special school because truly kind and special people make it so.

Thank you for everything and all our love,
Dylan and Cecilia.
