Welcome to Montessori School of Agoura

Currently enrolling for School Year 2023 - 2024

Welcome to Montessori School of Agoura, a traditional, high quality Montessori preschool and Kindergarten.

Our students have the freedom to progress at their own pace, explore their world with self-led activities, and draw their own conclusions. They gain knowledge, build confidence, and develop a lifelong love for learning.

Students learn with interactive tools & materials

Our classrooms are fully stocked with Montessori learning tools, made for the convenience of small hands. Some of our popular tools are Metal Insets, which build hand muscles for small movements, and the Pink Tower for teaching size and comparison. Most famous are the Sandpaper Letters, which students trace with their fingers as they sound out the alphabet.

"Education is a natural process carried out by the child and is not acquired by listening to words but by experience in the environment."

– Dr. Maria Montessori

My son has been going to MoA for 2 years. The teachers are so wonderful and caring and the school is just darling with a huge outdoor play area complete with jungle gym, monkey bars, chicken coup, bike riding area and an area where they grow plants, like corn. My son is super energetic and MoA was just what he needed to learn to focus, increase responsibility (like cleaning up after activities) and be stimulated with creative activities. I highly recommend considering this school! Our time here has been such a joyful experience.

We love Montessori School of Agoura ! My daughter attended this school for 3 years from 2.5-5  and it was such a great experience. We loved all the school activities and special things the kids got to do through out the year! She learned sign language, reading doing phonics, some Spanish, confidence in performing and made great friends! It definitely got her more than ready for kindergarten. In fact she tells me her public school kindergarten is too easy! They have a nice shaded playground, a fantastic environment with chickens running freely and a garden. I always felt great knowing my daughter was in such loving hands!

We are so happy we moved our son to this school. This is a TRUE Montessori program, with incredible teachers.  We are so happy that they have such a small teacher/student ratio which was something that was seriously lacking at our previous Montessori.  Privately owned, with a bit of a grounded, granola feel.  They even have a few chickens running around, and a “baby dragon” (bearded dragon.)

We came to Montessori of Agoura after my son was having issues with a new teacher at his prior preschool.  I was initially nervous about having him start a Montessori school, mistakenly thinking it would be too quiet for him.  He has had a great experience at Montessori of Agoura!  The teachers are all very experienced and have been with the school for some time.  The outdoor space is fun and well shaded.  The kids are engaged and my son never wants to leave at pickup.  They do adorable music programs for the parents.  We have been very happy with the program.

I don’t even know where to start of how good is this school. My son had flourished to unknown believe with this amazing place. Karen (director) and the teachers are the most caring and nurturing individuals I have ever met. They care for the kids like their own and the daily activities are amazing. The Director communicates with every parent in her stellar emails and she is a leader and a visionary of a caliber that no other school in the area has. I can go on a whole day but I simply love leaving my son every morning with this amazing crew. Highly recommend!

Our daughter had a great experience at this preschool for 2 years – as well as in their summer camp. The teachers are very calm and nurturing and our daughter emerged a socially mature and independent little girl thanks to their support and loving environment. I would, and do, recommend this school to anyone looking for a preschool based not only in academics, but the child’s social and emotional growth as well.

Our child attended Montessori School of Agoura for 3 years and it was a fantastic experience for her and for us. She loved the teaching environment, learned terrific life skills at a young age and the experience was a great preparation for her entrance into first grade. Strongly recommend MSOA. Great school and great, caring people.
