Teachers at Millbrae Montessori School come from various training programs. All of the teachers are patient and caring, providing each child with a welcoming, nurturing and cheerful environment to work in. The Montessori teacher is trained to be an observer of children and to follow their daily needs. They present new lessons, encourage children to choose appropriate work and oversees all the activities in the classroom and on the playground. Montessori teachers maintain a peaceful and respectful attitude in the classroom. Our well-qualified teachers are Early Childhood professionals, striving to create stimulating and challenging lessons for their students using age-appropriate materials.
