Toddler Program

Our youngest learners at Nia House are aged 18 months to 3 years. Our goal is to help children to become and remain:  naturally independent, socially responsible, confident, physically capable, curious and motivated learners.

Preschool Program

The Nia House preschool includes the traditional Montessori three year preschool plan, building skills in Math, Art, Language, Culture, Botony, Zoology, Sensorial education, and Practical Life.


When we started at Nia House, we were newly back to the Bay Area and instantly felt like we had a wonderful community to which our family belonged.

I am a pre school teacher myself and am constantly awed by the respect and empowerment given to the Nia House children by ALL of their teachers.

We love Nia House! My daughter loves to go to school. She is always happy when I arrive to pick her up. The teachers are awesome! They are genuine, loving, and thoughtful. They support my daughter in everything that she does and they allow her the space to make mistakes and learn through self expression and friendship. I am proud to be part of the Nia House community!
