Seven Oaks Welcomes Montessori School to the Neighborhood


It is an exciting time for Seven Oaks residents as Valley Montessori Academy recently broke ground on their new school site at the Seven Oaks Business Park. 

Established in 2016, Valley Montessori Academy is led by Anna Dulcich and Oxana Raimonda and focuses on providing high-quality education to preschool-aged children using the Montessori method. The new school site will allow them the opportunity to expand their programs, offering classes for toddlers as young as 18 months, preschoolers, and lower elementary-aged students as old as 9-years.

The Montessori curriculum varies by program; however, the goals for the school are consistent:

  • To enter a partnership with parents in the education of their children
  • To lead children toward mastery of individually identified intellectual, social, physical, and daily life skills
  • To foster in the children deep and persistent curiosity that will lead to a lifelong pursuit of knowledge
  • To help children develop self-confidence, become an independent, responsible, self-disciplined and self-motivated learner
  • To assist each child in developing a habit of concentration
  • To instill in each child a sense of personal responsibility for the world in which we live
  • To spark in our children’s wonder, imagination, and joy

“The community around Seven Oaks Business Park is growing as more families move into the area neighborhoods — Belcourt and Highgate and new businesses develop. The Valley Montessori Academy will soon provide another alternative for parents who are seeking a live-work-play balance,” says Senior Vice President of Bolthouse Properties, Bruce Davis.

The Valley Montessori Academy plans to open in the Summer of 2021. For more information about Valley Montessori Academy, visit
