ABOUT US

Our History

​​Keystone Montessori School grew out of a small program that started in 1981 and located in the Sycamore Church on Navellier Street in El Cerrito. It was a ‘morning only’ program with 12 students and was called “Cerrito Vista Montessori” because it was located close to Cerrito Vista Park. 

 

In 1995, Keystone moved to the property at 6639 Blake Street into a new childcare facility built by Owner.


In 2002, Keystone grew to approximately 60 students and 15 staff members, with some of our former students returning to the school as volunteers, parents, and staff.

​​In 2019, Keystone Montessori School was transitioned to new management with the responsibility of  upholding the standard and legacy Keystone Montessori School has earned over three decades. Miss Rohini Pathak is the new Director of Keystone and Ajay Pathak the Business Manager.​​

Our Montessori classrooms are thoughtfully designed to offer children opportunities to develop their own capabilities, learn accountability and space to develop and learn at their own pace.

 

There is focus on maintaining stable and stimulating environment to provide meaningful learning experiences.

Our Affiliations
Keystone Montessori School is affiliated with the American Montessori Society, which provides standards for the school and consultation for professional development.​​
