Charlevoix Childrens House

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.
