Pocatello Valley Montessori was founded in 2015 and is a multi-classroom Montessori center in Pocatello. We enroll students ages 18 months to 12 years from throughout the Pocatello area, including Chubbuck, Inkom, Blackfoot and other Bannock County communities.
The Pocatello Valley Montessori campus is located in the historic Roosevelt Academy, a building that for decades has been a learning center in our community. We are proud to build on that tradition to bring the Montessori method to Pocatello students.
Pocatello Valley Montessori School is an equal opportunity establishment. We do not discriminate based on race, gender, national origin, or sexual orientation.
The Pocatello Valley Montessori School Philosophy
In our Pocatello preschool/kindergarten and Lower and Upper Elementary classrooms, your child discovers the areas of learning where he or she will focus each day. With the help and caring guidance of our Montessori teachers, your child moves through a series of discoveries and seeks new interests.
Children love to learn, but not all children are ready to learn the same thing at exactly the same time. One child may be ready to advance her reading one day while another child may want to learn more about botany or geography.
At Pocatello Valley Montessori, our approach and curriculum encourage your child to nurture her or his own interests and independence through the Montessori method. Instead of expecting children to adapt to our classroom setting, we create an educational environment to meet different needs and offer individualized learning experiences. We hope you will visit our Montessori Pocatello school and see our philosophy in action.
