Discover Montessori... Let Your Child Discover The World

Welcome to Sunrise Montessori!  A privately-owned school, we are proud to have been a part of the Napa educational community for nearly 40 years.  Hand in hand with our dedicated parents, we have grown from a small preschool in 1978 to a beautiful campus with Toddler, Preschool, Kindergarten, and Elementary programs through the sixth grade. 

Along with core academic classes, Sunrise offers Spanish instruction, classroom music lessons, as well as private lessons in violin and piano, art enrichment, and a physical education program.

Our History...

It all began in 1978 when a group of Montessori teachers and parents formed a small preschool.  Now a beautiful campus with Toddler, Preschool, Kindergarten, and Elementary programs through the sixth grade, Sunrise Montessori is a respected educational leader in the Napa community and beyond.

We continue to strive to create a challenging, safe, and rewarding environment for our students. Led by dedicated staff and teachers and supported by a long tradition of parental involvement, we have achieved our goals of providing superior educational and developmental opportunities for our students, and having a positive impact on the surrounding community.

Our Mission... 

Sunrise Montessori nurtures each child’s unique potential while encouraging appreciation for other people, cultures and the environment.  High academic standards are balanced with fine arts, music, physical activity, foreign language, and spiritual growth.


 “Adults admire their environment; they remember and think about it.  But the child absorbs it.  The things the child sees are not just remembered, they form part of the child’s soul.”   

                -Dr. Maria Montessori,
                 The Absorbent Mind
