Little Elephant Montessori School is a small, safe, home like school set in the Rockridge neighborhood of Oakland. Our school has a large, sunny outdoor play yard and two cozy classrooms. In our primary classroom, we have the capacity for 22 full-time students, with two instructors. In our pre-primary classroom, we have the capacity for 12 full-time students, with two instructors.

Little Elephant too! is our Berkeley campus. Also located in a homelike setting, Little Elephant too! is a one room schoolhouse with the capacity for 24 children and two instructors.

Children are informally exposed to a number of different languages, including sign language, throughout our curriculum. We practice the Montessori philosophy at Little Elephant and as such, we are a progressive, warm, welcoming, non-rigid environment.
