Richa Sharma

Executive Director

I am the Executive Director/Owner of Scholarshine Montessori Fontana. I live in beautiful Southern California with my husband, two boys, and a dog named Leo. I hold Master's in early childhood education from Cal State Long Beach.

Since my early childhood, I have been surrounded by great teachers. My mother was a teacher, and witnessing her selflessly create a positive impact on every child's life inspired me from a young age. I pursued a degree in early childhood education to follow my passion for children and education. We believe that children learn best when they are having fun. At Scholarshine Montessori, we strive to create enjoyable learning experiences for your child, fostering a love for lifelong learning.

Parent Testimonials

Love social interaction for child

We started my 3 year old in August. We loved the impression we got during our tour and it has not failed us! All the teachers are so helpful and sweet. My son comes home with lovely things to hang on the fridge and we love the social interaction he is learning there. Due to COVID the check in and check out process is a little cumbersome, but I know everyone is doing their best and I definitely feel that they are following all guidelines to keep everyone safe. I would also say the I wish the location/area surrounding the school was a little better and the building/facilitIes themselves. However, I can see why this place had been in business for 25+ years and I hope to keep my child at this school.

Kind and patient teachers

I am so excited and thankful Montessori accepted my son during this difficult time. My two older boys now 13, went to this Montessori when they were in kindergarten. When they went into public school they were top of there class and continue to excel. My youngest was struggling like most with distant learning and he continued to fall behind, as a parent it hurt to see him struggling knowing that once this pandemic was over he would be expected to have retained all the information given. My son has only been going three days. I have faith in this Montessori and the director Ms. Nafisa. Ms. Nivine is my son's current teacher she is kind and patient with my son and he is excited to go to school, I'm excited to see my son reach his full potential.


Great investment into Child's education

We love this Montessori school. If you are a parent who really wants to invest into your child's education this is the school. By kindergarten our children were fluent readers. The teachers are amazing and so caring! Ms. Nivine is an amazing kindergarten teacher, she works so hard with each student to excel in all subject areas. Ms. Maria and Ms. Inés are so caring and do so great with the preschool children. All the teachers here are wonderful!!!
