School Notes:

Montessori Children’s House has nurtured thousands of children and their families since it was established in 1968.Fort Worth’s first Montessori school is a child-centered, dynamic environment that is responsive to the changing needs of children as they grow and learn. Children from ages 18 months through 14 years are encouraged to learn by doing. They choose work from multi-sensory Montessori materials that provide them with experiences at a concrete level then progress toward abstraction by integrating complexity.Multi-age groupings give them the opportunity to learn from other students and to participate in cooperative projects. Interdependence rather than competition is encouraged to foster high self-esteem.All classrooms have teachers who have attended American Montessori Society teacher education courses. Our environment, both inside and outside, is carefully prepared to enhance learning with age appropriate activities that reflect the real world.Montessori Children’s House is a fully accredited school with the American Montessori Society (AMS), the largest Montessori organization in the world. Our music program is licensed by Musikgarten. We also offer enrichment classes such as Spanish (starting in preschool) and art (starting in elementary).We invite you to visit Montessori Children’s House to see this exciting approach to education in action. Please contact the office at 817.732.0252 or 817.732.8480 to set up an appointment or for more information about our school.
