Roots N Wings Montessori program offers the traditional Montessori mixed aged environment for 3-6 year old children.  This arrangement benefits all children.  The older children are able to serve as role models and leaders while they complete the most challenging works while the younger children have peers that can set examples.  The older children often have the opportunity to help or teach the younger ones reinforcing their own skills and developing a sense of confidence.

All families that are interested in Roots N Wings Montessori are required to visit the school before enrollment.  We encourage you to visit other Montessori schools and play-based preschools.  We want you to be confident in your decision when placing your child in our care.

The school is open Monday to Friday, 8:30am to 5:30pm.  We try to match our Holiday schedule to the Redwood city school district, but there are some exceptions.  Please review the school calendar for the dates that the school is closed.  We offer the following programs:

Our daily schedule is shown below, but it is approximate and may change depending on the needs of the children and planned classroom activities.  Children may be gathered for stories or special lessons throughout the day. Depending on the day, the weather  and the interests of the children the time we spend outside may vary.  Snacks are available to the children throughout  both work periods.  Our circle time is also flexible.  Children are encouraged to attend, but not required.  It is a time of greeting, sharing, songs, calendar and the occasional lesson.
