Welcome to the Parkside Montessori PTA


"The goal of early childhood education should be to cultivate the child's own desire to learn."  - Maria Montessori


The Parkside Montessori PTA (Parent Teacher Association) is a non-profit organization that supports our school by organizing community events, funding school and classroom needs, leading campus clean up and beautification efforts, sponsoring field trips and assemblies, and much more to improve our campus, enrich our classrooms and support our teachers. 


Parkside Montessori is one of two schools in the San Mateo Foster City School District that provides a public Montessori program, offering an alternative curriculum designed to meet all California state educational standards while providing the same services and resources as other district schools. Parkside Montessori is also the home to elementary and preschool age SDC classes (Special Day Class), as well as a Montessori Preschool class.


We hope you will join us in our efforts to build and strengthen the Parkside Montessori community.


We welcome all of our new students, families, and new teachers and staff, in addition to welcoming back our returning students, families, and returning teachers and staff.
