- At Charlevoix Children's House we celebrate the child. We are a Montessori community dedicated to providing a learning environment that guides, nurtures, and enriches the individual.
- Maria Montessori, an Italian physician, developed the Montessori philosophy and method of education in 1896.
- The premise of her work is that children interact with materials and learn from their environment, not from the teacher.
- Maria Montessori developed what she called “the prepared environment”. Among its features is an ordered arrangement of learning materials in a noncompetitive atmosphere, which helps each child develop at his/her own rate.
- Children learn through doing. A child's play is a child's work.
- At Charlevoix Children's House, the process, not the product, is taught.
- The ultimate goal is that each child be responsible for his or her own education.
