Woodside Montessori Academy provides a nurturing, diverse community that inspires creativity, compassion and a love of learning for children preschool to grade 8 and their families.
Woodside’s physical building is closed until May 4th. We are continuing with our mission to educate children in the tradition of Maria Montessori with our “Learning at Home” virtual platforms. We support our children by focusing on process over product, independence, creativity and inquiry.

If you’d like to learn more about Woodside, our Head of School and Admissions Director is available and here for you. Please see our admissions page for more.

Woodside Without Walls

The Woodside teachers have been working to create virtual learning plans for each level, from Primary to Middle School. While we must keep our physical distance, we remain connected as a vibrant learning community. We have utilized a variety of resources to enhance learning that is child focused.

Our Events

We are looking forward to returning to our vibrant community! We will reschedule these events as we are able. Please check back soon!

Woodside Robot Day

Over the last several years Woodside has acquired several different robots that we use to teach coding to children of all levels. These robots have become a part of our classroom culture and the children enjoy working with them on a daily basis. These robots promote teamwork, linear thinking, and creativity. We would like to welcome you to come for a day and experience some of the robots we work with. We will be showing the Colbie Programming Mouse, WeDo Lego Robotics, the Ozobot, and Kibo.

Parent Insight Nights

Montessori isn’t just for the classroom. You can easily bring its principles into your home—and doing so can be an invaluable bridge to reinforcing what your child learns at school. The teachers will give practical ideas that are easy to implement. Bring your questions!

Storybook Stroll

Read a story page by page as you take a walk through our beautiful playground! Teachers and students will be dressed up as characters for the story! We will have a create and special treat at the end of the stroll!
