Conveniently located off highways 55 and 100, near the edge of downtown Minneapolis, our Golden Valley Montessori school location serves families from the metro area including Minneapolis, Golden Valley, Plymouth, Maple Grove, St. Louis Park, Wayzata, Hopkins, Fridley and Brooklyn Park.
The indoor environment at our Golden Valley Montessori consists of three Children’s Houses which serve ages 3-6, two Toddler Rooms which serve ages 16 months-36 months and two infant rooms which serve ages 6 weeks- 16 weeks. All of the purposefully prepared environments are physically and psychologically designed for the children to move freely, choosing work that interests them and meets their developmental needs. In addition to our carefully prepared classroom environments, our Golden Valley location boasts an infant feeding room to provide new mothers with an optional space to feed their child before, during, or after the day, as well as two large indoor spaces in which the children can exercise their gross motor skills, participating in activities such as soccer, yoga, dance art and large motor movements, when outdoor play is not an option.
The Golden Valley location also includes two separate outdoor play areas, one for Children’s House and one for Toddlers, complete with age appropriate outdoor activities, nature based toys, sandboxes and playgrounds. On a nice summer day, you will frequently see Children’s House enjoying lunch outside on the shaded picnic tables, enjoying nature and the beautiful summer weather in their safe, enclosed space. In front of the large building, our children have supervised access to several beautiful garden beds in which they plant, care for and harvest vegetables throughout the summer months, an activity that allows each child to further understand the beauty of nature during their formative years at Peaceful Valley Montessori Academy.
