Staying Together & Distance Learning

Sunny Hollow Montessori engaged in learning from home (distance learning) from March 16, 2020 through the end of the school year. Our learning and connections continued! For resources and updates about Sunny Hollow's learning from home program, please check here.

Our Toddler program is reopening in July and our Casa (preschool and Kindergarten), Elementary, and Junior High programs will reopen in September.

We are still accepting applications for the 2020-2021 school year on a “space available” basis. Information here.
