Our Pledge
Pine Tree Montessori

A love story with passion to educate children for over 50 years.

Our Pledge

We pledge to treat every child with love, respect and care, while instilling in them both knowledge and values. We pledge to provide each and every child with essentials for lifelong learning and the resources to advance their knowledge at their own pace. We pledge to treat every child the same and give them the one-on-one attention that every child needs and deserves. We will always provide a safe and nurturing environment for the children. We strive to guide and assist the children as they learn and grow with us here at Pine Tree in Yorba Linda.
After many years of expression and experience in educating children, since 1960, our school philosophy is being used as originally intended, as a method of seeing children as they really are and of creating environments which foster the fulfillment of their highest potential: spiritual, emotional, physical, intellectual and cognitive. Dr. Maria Montessori gave the world a scientific method, practical and tested, for bringing forth the very best in young human beings. At Pine Tree  preschool, we teach our children how to respect individual differences, and to emphasize social interaction and the education of the whole personality rather than the teaching of a specific body of knowledge.
Montessori school practice is always up-to-date and dynamic because observation and the meeting of needs is continual and specific for each child. When physical, mental, spiritual, cognitive and emotional needs are met children glow with excitement and a drive to play and work with enthusiasm, to learn, and to create.
The high level of academic achievement so common in our Yorba Linda preschool which embraces this philosophy is a natural outcome of experience in such a supportive environment. Our preschool method of education is a model which serves the needs of children of all levels mental and physical ability as they live and learn in a natural, mixed age group which is very much like the society they live in as adults.
