Marbella Montessori is conveniently located off the 5 Freeway at Ortega Highway in beautiful San Juan Capistrano. In addition to serving San Juan Capistrano, we serve the neighboring Orange County communities of Ladera Ranch, San Clemente, Aliso Viejo, Dana Point, Laguna Hills, Laguna Niguel, Irvine and Mission Viejo.
Our mission is to provide a quality early childhood program where we cultivate and honor children's innate love of learning as they prepare for a life of purpose, integrity, and academic accomplishment. Marbella Montessori students gain the skills and confidence to meet the challenges of self, family, community, and the world at large. It is our mission, through the Montessori method, to meet individual children’s needs while simultaneously creating an atmosphere of cooperation, teamwork, and group participation involving parents in unique student related programs, and offering viable intellectual growth and a continued desire and enthusiasm to learn for all students.
Marbella Montessori serves the community by providing an authentic Montessori environment with a carefully planned, stimulating environment which will help children develop within themselves the foundational habits, attitudes, skills, and ideas which are essential for a lifetime of creative thinking and learning. All concepts are presented in a safe, secure, loving and respectful environment. The four core curriculum areas—Practical Life, Sensorial, Math, and Language—are enhanced by Cultural Studies including Music, Art and Geography. We believe in Maria Montessori’s philosophy that all children are unique, curious about their world, and are born with a desire to learn. We respect these characteristics and it is our goal to provide an environment where the child will have a quality learning experience.
