Sunny Garden Montessori

Chico's Only indoor Family Play Space

 

Play is a child's work & work is a child's play

 

We are much more than Mommy & Me indoor play. Set up for parents, grandparents, nannies, & friends—children play, families gather, & friendships bloom.

With a carefully prepared environment, we help cultivate life skills, communication and self-confidence.

We know that children's minds are as absorbent as a sponge and we provide you and your child with daily activities that are challenging, rewarding,and exciting for everyone!

A Montessori Environment teaches children to observe, to think and to judge.

Our Philosophy

One of our desires is to share our love of the Montessori philosophy with the community.  

Our goal is to create a fun, learning environment for children and their adults through play and fun interactions.

We encourage adults to interact with their child as much as possible because we believe that you are your child's first teacher and their favorite playmate
