Welcome to Montessori Academy of Culver City
Established in 1986, Montessori Academy Of Culver City is a year-round school in Culver City, California, that follows the Montessori method. We provide a strong academic curriculum in a loving, caring environment. This program also includes music education and art and contributes to the physical, social and emotional development of the child. Our beautifully landscaped property features a quiet, serene environment and a large, well-supervised, secure play area. Full-time and part-time programs are available, taught by credentialed teachers all year round.
Our Montessori school serves students ages 2 through 6. Your child does not need to be potty trained; we work with the parents and potty train the child at school. We have approximately 5000 Sq. Ft. of indoor activity area that includes a separate room for Music/Dance and a Library, over 4000 Sq. Ft. of outdoor play area in a natural setting, and ample parking in front of the school building for pick up and drop off.
Under the guidance of our Academy Director, Ruhi Khan, our year-round academy offers a program that provides individualized attention and maintains high academic standards. Montessori methods and teaching tools are used to ensure maximum developmental opportunities for children through age 6. Our program includes:
- Language Arts
- Social Studies/Geography
- Dance/Fantasy Theater
Foreign Language –English, Spanish, Mandarin
Young children have a natural ability to learn, with 50% of this ability being developed in the first few years of life, 30% by age eight (Kotulak, 1996). The first three to four years of life are considered the best time for children to learn a second language, and is as easy as acquiring knowledge in their first language (Vos, 2008). Why? Children are bound to assimilate new sounds and new utterances indiscriminately at that time regardless of whether it is their mother tongue or another language.
Lower Student-Teacher Ratio
Our strong academic program and low student-teacher ratio further facilitates optimum learning conditions. According to availability of space, children can be enrolled throughout the year.
A Word from Our Director
We provide a nurturing environment that helps the child develop emotionally, socially, and physically as a whole. Due to our low student-teacher ratio, we are able to provide individualized attention to help our students thrive.
