Northern Star Montessori History

In 2020, Miss Katrina ran a mixed-grade Montessori “pod” classroom for a group of young students during the pandemic in a quaint and cozy classroom in Truckee, CA. It was a great success and inspired the continuation and open enrollment of a Montessori school for our community in North West Reno. Northern Star Montessori School is a new Preschool located on Mae Anne Ave. in North West Reno, NV.
