AppleSeed International

Our mission is to guide and support the development of the whole child – socially, emotionally, intellectually and physically – inspired by the Montessori teaching method. We believe each child is like a “spiritual embryo”, full of potential, and in need of an environment warm with love and rich with nourishment, in which the child will be protected and can grow and develop his/her unique and whole personality. Our stimulating, organized classrooms offer a wide variety of hands-on Montessori materials which children utilize independently, individually and in small groups, under the careful guidance of our well-prepared teachers.

We are located in Sunnyvale, California, and offer English-only and bilingual programs in English and Chinese (Mandarin) for children ages 18 months - 6 years. We also offer after-school care for children ages 5 – 12 years.

For additional bilingual and English-only programs for infants through kindergarteners, please visit our affiliates, AppleSeed Montessori Schools and Sunshine Montessori School.

AppleSeed International School is proud to be affiliated with the American Montessori Society.

“The secret of good teaching is to regard the child's intelligence as a fertile field in which seeds may be sown, to grow under the heat of flaming imagination.” -- Maria Montessori
