Cloverdale Montessori School

Cloverdale Montessori School offers classes from potty trained through 6 years old. We are open year round. Our business hours are from 7am until 6pm.

Operating as usual


It takes dedication to finish the multiplication board.


Alumni and current students are welcome to attend! Help us honor Ms. Jan for her years of teaching at Cloverdale Montessori. This is a drop-in event. Come visit Ms. Jan between 4pm and 6pm on June 15th.


As many of you know, after 22 years of service to the school, Jan Sheppard will be retiring from Cloverdale Montessori at the end of May, 2024. We are very appreciative of Jan’s many contributions to the school over the years and wish her all the best in this new chapter of her life.

All families and staff are invited to attend a celebration on June 15th, at the school, to honor Jan. A special thank you goes out to Lindsey (Emma’s mom), Shari (Gabriel’s mom), Sachi (Braden’s mom), and Kara (Stella’s mom) who have graciously offered to organize the party.


The Celebration of Life is a beautiful Montessori ceremony that takes place on a child’s birthday. A candle is used to symbolize the sun and a globe is used to represent the Earth. The child carries the earth and walks around the sun once for each year of his life. The children sing a special song and the teacher shares a photo and description of their accomplishments with each revolution around the sun.
Everyone enjoys this beautiful celebration


The lessons should inspire the teacher as much as they do the students.
