If the answer is yes, you should come to check us out!  Established in January 2020, Garden of Joy Montessori aims to provide quality early childhood education for our local community. We were closed from 3/16 to 6/19 due to COVID-19, and have been re-opened since Monday 6/22. 

Words From The Founder

Like many moms, I have faced the great challenge of finding the perfect preschool for my son when he was 3. It was during this process that I came across the Montessori Method and fell in love with it. This passion has led me to take the full credential training and work in several Montessori schools.  


As a dedicated Montessori follower who loves children, I believe early childhood education (especially 2-6 years old) is too important to be messed up. It sets the foundation for the child’s whole life. When such education is implemented appropriately, the child will benefit from it all life long. As such, our children deserve the best quality education we could possibly provide. 


To this end, I have established my home-based school- a joyful, nurturing, and thriving garden for your beloved children. We are looking for families that share our mission and values to join our Garden of Joy Montessori Community. I understand that there are many options out there for your children and I appreciate greatly your interest in and consideration of our school.


We are located in East San Jose, close to Lake Cunningham Park & East Valley YMCA. The nearest intersection is between White & Tully. 

Please feel free to contact us to schedule a school tour.
