About the Provider


Established in 1984, Piedmont Hills Montessori Academy (PHMA) has been serving the families of San Jose and surrounding communities for over 30 years. Our Montessori-based childcare services for toddlers, preschoolers, and kindergarteners foster your child’s emotional, social, physical, and academic development. Our curriculum is structured enough to encourage ongoing education and flexible enough to give children room to explore what interests them.

Montessori preschools and childcare services give children the room and freedom to learn and discover new things at their own pace. We integrate hands-on activities to keep your child engaged and make learning fun, all while ensuring that every child is learning age-appropriate skills and growing developmentally.

Additional Information:

We have two large, newly renovated outdoor playgrounds totaling 10,000 square feet that are perfect for running around and letting imaginations go wild. One playground is beach-themed, complete with a sand box, painting center, twisting traverse, and a big Burke® pirate ship! Our second playground is all about transportation. Kids love the 25-foot poly choo-choo train, trike track, airplane seesaw, and rocket hopscotches. These shaded, immersive playgrounds make it possible for your child to enjoy outdoor activities and access nature all year round.

Our immersive playgrounds are just the beginning of our child-centered facilities. Every indoor classroom is bright, spacious, and ideal for discovery and play—after all, play is life for young children. We have four classrooms: Forest Room, Ocean Room, and STEM 1 and 2 Rooms. We pride ourselves in our clean classroom environment. We sanitize all of our indoor and outdoor facilities every night. Teaching your child about health and wellness is important to us, which is why we focus on health education and best practices in all of our classes. One aspect of our health education is nutrition. We prepare snacks and meals that are balanced, nutritious, allergy-friendly, and delicious.

Our long history in San Jose has given us the opportunity to serve generations of families in the surrounding neighborhoods. There’s nothing we love more than building relationships with families and watching the students become the parents throughout the years.
