Support Montessori

Thank you for being so supportive!

Every gift to Montessori de Santa Cruz is greatly appreciated and contributes directly to the educational experience provided to our students. Our school is a child-centered learning environment based on the timeless philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori over 100 years ago. The Montessori approach is designed to inspire the child’s love of learning, develop each child’s unique potential, and empower them to engage in our community actively. Your gift, of any size, immediately impacts the critical work we do.

All of our outcomes are made possible through two primary sources of revenue: Arizona Department of Education funding and contributed income. We rely upon our generous community of parents, grandparents, friends, and community partners to provide the support that meets our needs.

Montessori de Santa Cruz also treasures the time and talent within our community. Parents, grandparents, and community members are provided opportunities to donate their time and talent: volunteering with material making, serving on a committee, field trip chaperone, reading volunteer, and more. We believe “it takes a village to raise a child” and welcome the partnership between home and school.
