We are inspired

by the idea that it takes a village to raise a child and that the wellbeing of the entire community is essential to the wellbeing of young people and their families.

Our Mission

We provide high-quality early childhood education best exemplified by the Montessori Method, and sustainability-minded community & enrichment programs for children and youth. We serve the beautiful communities located in Southern Sonoma County.

Our historic schoolhouse was constructed in the late-1800s, and retains its charming rural character while offering newly renovated classrooms.

About Us

Our name, Ammamma Tati, is an homage to our co-founder Aishwarya Kancharla’s grandmother and grandfather (“ammamma” and “tati” meaning “grandmother” and “grandfather” respectively in Telugu, Aishwarya’s first language). While high school graduation was not in the cards for Aishwarya’s grandparents, they nevertheless dedicated their lives to improving their communities by providing an education to those who could not access it otherwise.

Ammamma Subhashini and Tati Laxmi Narasimha started a school for orphans in the Indian state of Telangana in the early 1980s. Today, hundreds remain enrolled in the program and thousands more have been educated since its founding.

Committed to the principle that it takes a village to raise thoughtful and independent children, it is their vision of community that serves as the driving inspiration for our organization.
