Woodside Without Walls

"We shall walk together on this path of life, for all things are part of the universe and are connected with each other to form one whole unity."
Maria Montessori

Woodside Montessori Academy is open and remains a vibrant online community of learners. As we prepared for the impending closure of our campus, Woodside Montessori Academy's teachers and staff worked together to create home learning plans for each age level, from Early childhood through Middle School. While we must keep our physical distance from each other, we remain connected as a learning community. Below are some of our “teacher picks” that might help you in your journey in guiding children at home.
