Little Elephant Montessori Schools are small, safe, home like schools set in the Rockridge and Berkeley neighborhoods of the East Bay. Each of our schools has a large, sunny outdoor play yard and cozy classrooms. At our Rockridge location we have two classrooms, our primary classroom with capacity for 22 full-time students and two instructors. In our pre-primary classroom, we have the capacity for 11 full-time students, with two instructors.

Little Elephant too! is our Berkeley campus. Little Elephant too! is a one room schoolhouse with the capacity for 24 children and two instructors.

We practice the Montessori philosophy at Little Elephant and as such, we are a progressive, warm, welcoming, non-rigid environment.
