Welcome to Dana Montessori School | Dana Point, California

Thank you for your interest in the Dana Montessori School of Dana Point, California. Established in 2000 for child care and preschool child education. Our reputation for quality has allowed us to continue providing preschool education, day care and child care . Our school has repeatedly met the standards of excellence required by the National Academy of Early Childhood Programs (NAEYC) and is fully accredited.

Montessori Schools of Dana Point programs are based on the strong foundation of early childhood education created by Dr. Maria Montessori. This method recognizes that children are born with an "absorbent mind" the natural ability to learn by spontaneously absorbing knowledge from their environment. Based on this respect and understanding of the child, the Montessori environment encourages the child to explore. What they discover is an enriched world of beauty, peace, and interest to promote learning the natural way.

We invite you to compare Dana Montessori School with other preschools in your area as you seek the program that is best for your child.

We look forward to the privilege of providing a safe learning environemnt for your child.

What Parents Say about us...

"There are not enough words to be able to say how amazing Ms. Priya is. We have been sending our 24 month old daughter to her for about a month and a half and have seen such a positive difference in our little one. She comes home happy, and we can tell she is feeling safe and comfortable with Ms. Priya. As a matter of fact, she won't leave without making sure she hugs Ms. Priya first.

Ms. Priya has such a positive energy and she is constantly teaching the kiddos to build good habits, their letters and numbers, songs and rhymes, colors and games. Her communication is clear, and she really works so hard to give all of her kids her 110%. As parents placing their child in day care for the first time, we were very apprehensive, however Ms. Priya won our little one over in a week and quelled our hearts!! She has helped to make our little one more independent and has been helping her build her speech skills as well. We cannot believe how fortunate we were to find Ms. Priya".
