Welcome to San Marin Montessori in Novato!

San Marin Montessori Pre-School was founded in 1995 by Magali Zimmermann Roche with the idea to “Help Children Become All They Can Become“, by creating a unique prepared  environment  where children’s inherent love of learning is encouraged by giving them the opportunity to engage in spontaneous, meaningful activities under the guidance of a trained adult. The results are children who are engaged and interested in learning to advance, while at the same time developing self respect, and respect for the world around them.

The beauty of Montessori is that it is the right “fit” for a wide array of personalities, temperaments, and learning styles. All children find joy in learning in an atmosphere of both cooperation and respect. At San Marin Montessori the teachers and parents work together, between home and school, to help children learn and develop to their full potential.

Join San Marin Montessori today and  experience  the difference.

"I am the mother of 3 children who have attended Magali’s Montessori program. I have known Magali for over 8 years. Her dedication and love for children have been evident throughout all these years. Her experience and knowledge helped my children become more confident and academically prepared for success in their Elementary years."
