Our classrooms are open! Find out how Sunny Hollow Montessori is providing peace of mind by following best practices for safety and sanitation.


Sunny Hollow is thriving.  It has pivoted and adapted, responded and adjusted to the COVID-19 landscape and developed environments to meet the needs of both on-campus and distance learners.

For instance, in the summer of 2020, we raised the funds needed to purchase “Technology Toolkits” (MacBook Pro, webcam, tripod and memory card) for each classroom to enable connection, communication and collaboration between distance and on-campus learners.

And, like every independent school whose doors are open during COVID, in order to create and maintain a safe, healthy and inclusive environment, Sunny Hollow is facing unforeseen financial issues.  Specifically:

  • Capped enrollment to maintain small on-campus class sizes
  • Ongoing purchases of PPE and sanitizers: gloves, masks, face shields, supplies for our Electrostatic Sprayer
  • Additional staff to support distance learners
  • A significant increase in the number of families in need of Financial Aid as a result of lost jobs or diminished income levels

As the majority of Financial Aid comes from Sunny Hollow’s Operating Budget, donations to the Annual Fund will help offset the Operating Budget deficit resulting from additional funds being directed to help families in need. 

If you are thankful for the guidance, instruction and community connection and loving care experienced by Sunny Hollow students and families — past and present — please make a donation.  

Every single gift makes a difference.
