Montessori Elementary School of Alameda (MESA)


Preschool - 5th Grade. OUR MISSION is to create a warm, loving, secure environment that fosters creativity, curiosity, self-confidence and independence so that students may become models of peace and can succeed in an evolving world. Montessori education has expanded in Alameda with the addition of MESA - Montessori Elementary School of Alameda (extension of award winning preschool-kindergarten, The Child Unique). MESA involves the academic rigor of core subjects, balanced by an emphasis in writing, critical thinking, public speaking and the arts. Our curriculum involves the integration of the common core within the Montessori academic scope and sequence, with an underpinning of lessons of character development, leadership and responsibility to self, community and the world. A small class, representative of the concept of blended grades allows for attention and innovative, non-traditional emphasis unmatched in many typical settings. At The Child Unique, we want children to do more than just learn. We want them to think. We want them to think about what they think about. And then to take that understanding, to be changed by it, And then to change the world. And we believe that this begins here. It’s preschool that will transform the world. The Child Unique Montessori School has a history of over 25 years of a commitment to fulfill the progressive needs of education and the emotional evolving needs of a child. We have always been a leader in challenging how a preschool/kindergarten can be in the world. Our underlying foundation, which enhances our Montessori philosophy, is a strong cultural curriculum and commitment to creating children who will be leaders of a peaceful, better world. What makes a parent choose The Child Unique? • We have not only small ratios, but small classes • We have always honored families of all compositions and cultures • We have staff who hold 10 – 20 years of longevity • We have a strong cultural program, which teaches inclusion and honor • We encourage children to be confident learners and shapers of the world.
