Horizon Community School is the result of an innovative partnership among Marin Horizon School, Community Action Marin (CAM) and other community organizations. The Marin City campus opened its doors to an inaugural class of 12 two-year-olds on August 23, 2017. Honoring Marin Horizon School and Community Action Marin's commitment to foster and respect diversity in the community and the world, Horizon Community School satisfies a growing need for quality early childhood education in an underserved community of Marin County.
Our program offers a culturally competent, Montessori-inspired curriculum in a nurturing environment that promotes cognitive, social and emotional development. The school day includes exploration of the senses and activities to advance practical life skills, acquisition of language and mathematical skills, as well as a sense of order. Sensorial materials are rotated frequently and become increasingly complex throughout the year. Imaginative play is encouraged, and learning is fun and purposeful.
Horizon Community School believes that education is a cooperative endeavor between families and educators, and this special program features monthly family activities and educational programs to promote play, learning, and healthy routines both at school and at home.
